The University of Michigan is reportedly hiring Alabama offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier.

A person spoke Thursday morning to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the move has not been announced.

The Crimson Tide hired Nussmeier nearly two years ago to be Nick Saban's offensive coordinator after he directed the Washington Huskies' offense the previous three seasons. Nussmeier also spent one season as offensive coordinator at Fresno State and had stints as quarterbacks coach with Michigan State and the St. Louis Rams.

A quarterback at Idaho, Nussmeier was drafted by the New Orleans Saints and played four years (1994-97) with the Saints and one with the Indianapolis Colts (1998) before moving on to the Canadian Football League. He helped the British Columbia Lions win the Grey Cup in 2000.

Michigan fired offensive coordinator Al Borges on Wednesday after the Wolverines ranked 86th in the nation in total offense. Borges was one of several assistants who came with head coach Brady Hoke in 2011 from his staff at San Diego State.
