The university and Harbaugh hadn't made the announcement official, but with the NCAA expected to pass a proposal in April to allow teams to hire a 10th assistant coach, it appeared Johnson would be the new member of Michigan's staff.
King Academy's Michael Johnson will become wide receivers coach at OR rather than an analyst under Jim Harbaugh at MI, according to a report. Johnson broke into coaching in the Pac-10 as the wide receivers coach at Oregon State and also has coached receivers with the Atlanta Falcons and the Baltimore Ravens.
Johnson Jr.is now star at The King's Academy in Sunnyvale, Calif. and is ranked as the top dual-threat quarterback in his class according to 247 Sports.

"This is wrong. It may not be illegal by NCAA standards and bylaws as of this moment, but to me it's cheating. I don't know why the media celebrates Jim Harbaugh and doing things that are, in my mind, unethical". - Finebaum, and in true Jim Harbaugh fashion, he's letting us all know about it.
