On Monday, Michigan State head football coach Mark Dantonio officially announced the hiring of new co-offensive coordinator Jim Bollman. It will be Bollman’s second stint on the Michigan State coaching staff, returning to East Lansing 16 years after he spent three seasons under Nick Saban as an offensive line coach from 1995-1997.
After those three years at Michigan State, Bollman spent three more in the NFL from 1998-2000 before returning to the college ranks in 2001 at Ohio State. There he spent 11 years as the offensive coordinator/offensive line coach of the Buckeyes, directing an offense that went to three national championships during his tenure there, including the 2002 National Championship victory over Miami(FL), coaching alongside Dantonio, who was the defensive coordinator for Ohio State at the time.
