The Wolverines announced the hiring of Shaun Nua on Thursday as their new defensive line coach, pulling in the former Arizona State assistant to fill the opening.

"Shaun is a rising star in the coaching profession," said Jim Harbaugh. "He is well-respected among his peers, relates well with the student-athletes that he mentors, and brings great passion and energy to his work. We are excited to have Shaun join our defensive coaching staff and work daily with our defensive linemen. Michigan football looks forward to having Shaun, Hilary and their children, Losi, Kelina and Malia, join our University family."

Prior to one year at ASU, Nua spent six years at the Naval Academy coaching defensive linemen. A former player at BYU, he spent four years in the NFL, returning to his alma mater to begin his coaching career as an intern for one year, and graduate assistant for another.

Nua replaces Greg Mattison, who left Michigan to be co-defensive coordinator at Ohio State. He is one of three new assistant coaches hired this off-season, joining defensive assistant Anthony Campanile and new offensive coordinator Josh Gattis.
