Ron Lee , who coached cornerbacks and the punt-return team, is no longer on the staff, according to a team source. Lee spent one season with the Wolverines. A reason for Lee's departure was not given. Before joining the Michigan staff last fall, Lee spent three seasons at Wisconsin as the defensive backs coach.This is an unusual event for a Michigan program that often bends over backwards to make sure its coaches have jobs somewhere else before it lets them go. Also weird: letting a coach go before signing day. I don't think anyone will miss Lee after the season-ending debacles in the secondary, but those weren't entirely his fault. Maybe he's been an indifferent recruiter at best?
