Trgovac to Michigan? Not likely

HONOLULU – Rumors on message boards out of Michigan for more than a week suggest Panthers defensive coordinator Mike Trgovac is about to bolt Carolina to become defensive coordinator for the University of Michigan.

There was even a rumor that Trgovac was seen in Ann Arbor earlier this week. Trgovac played at Michigan, so this might not seem so far-fetched, except for a couple of very important points.

Trgovac has been in Hawaii, where he and the Panthers staff are coaching the NFC squad in Sunday’s Pro Bowl, since Friday.

Trgovac was asked about the Michigan rumors Wednesday night.

"No, that’s the first I’ve heard that,’’ Trgovac said. "I haven’t heard anything about that.’’

One other reason to doubt the rumors: Going to Michigan would likely be a cut in pay and Trgovac is probably one more season of solid play from Carolina’s defense away from having a shot at a head coaching job in the NFL.
