Doug Nussmeier will be one of the most recognizable coordinators in college football in 2014.

Like Florida’s Kurt Roper, Nussmeier walks into the first year of a new job where the head coach is under increased pressure.

If everything goes well, Brady Hoke will remain the head man in Ann Arbor and Nussmeier will once again be on the short list of rising names for head coaching jobs.

The first step for Nussmeier? Bring what worked at his old job at Alabama, adapt to his new personnel at Michigan and solidify a system as quickly as possible.

Nussmeier recently joined "The Audible with Bruce Feldman" to discuss the challenges ahead in Ann Arbor, what he took from his old boss Nick Saban, what he learned about successful people from the NFL and more.
