Former Stanford OC Pep Hamilton is leaving the Cleveland Browns’ staff to become Michigan’s passing game coordinator and assistant head coach, a source told FOX Sports Monday afternoon.

Hamilton, the former Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator, will reunite with Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh, who had hired him while at Stanford.

The 42-year-old Hamilton groomed Andrew Luck into a two-time Heisman Trophy finalist (2010-11), two-time Pac-12 Player of the Year (2010-11) and the 2011 Maxwell Award winner as the nation’s top player.

A former college quarterback, Hamilton earned Howard’s scholar-athlete award in 1995 and 1996, before earning his business degree in 1997. He replaces Jedd Fisch who left Michigan a week ago to become UCLA’s new offensive coordinator.
