(Photo by Jamie Sabau/Getty Images)The Michigan Wolverines will lose multiple stars on defense to the NFL Draft, but the coaching staff just made a significant addition for next season.With Don Brown returning to Ann Arbor for another season as the defensive coordinator, the Wolverines didn’t have to worry about having familiar faces on their staff. Nonetheless, Jim Harbaugh went out of his way to bring new methods and ideas to that unit.After spending one season with Arizona State, Shaun Nua will become the new defensive line coach for Michigan. He also had prior experience with Navy and BYU.Nua has mentored a plethora of defensive lineman over the past few years, and his ability to coach was showcased with the Sun Devils in the form of  Renell Wren. The senior became an absolute force in the trenches for Arizona State and should be selected rather early in the upcoming draft.Considering that Nua was selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers back in 2005 and was in the NFL for four seasons, he should be able to relate to his players.Harbaugh expressed his excitement over this coaching hire, saying “Shaun is a rising star in the coaching profession.”The Wolverines announced the move becoming official on their Twitter account today.OFFICIAL: @CoachJim4UM names Shaun Nua as new defensive line coach.DETAILS » https://t.co/i0MxHuwnD8#GoBlue 〽️? pic.twitter.com/NYp7FB2Bc1— Michigan Football (@UMichFootball) January 17, 2019The Wolverines finished the 2018 season with the No. 2 defense in the entire country, allowing only 275.2 yards per game.With expectations rising in Michigan for next season, it’ll be interesting to see if Nua can help elevate the defense to new heights.last_img read more

The more you score the more you believe you are going to score and everyone says when you don’t score ‘he is bound to score soon’. The more you score the more chance you have of being confident, running into the same positions. The way he works during the week is fantastic because he practices a lot. It is a pleasure working with him,” he added.Club’s senior player Ashley Young believes Marcus Rashford is getting better by working with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.”I think he’s learning each day and obviously the manager will guide him in the way he does. Marcus just wants to learn. I’ve said it from the time he broke into the team and even before then, he can be an unbelievable talent, he’s got the world ahead of him,” Young said.”He wants to learn as well, which is a good thing to see in a youngster now. He’s on a great scoring run right now and I hope it continues for him.”advertisementRashford has found the back of the net five times in Solskjaer’s seven games in charge so far. He marked his 150th club game with a fine goal against Brighton, finding the top corner from an acute angle.In-form Manchester United, who have won their last seven fixtures, take on bitter foes Arsenal in the FA Cup on Friday.”We’ll work on what we need to this week, prepare in the right way and I’m sure if we can play the way we’ve been showing and even add to what we’ve done, I’m sure we’ll go down there and do well,” Young said.Also Watch:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
