Michigan Wolverines wide receivers coach Jim McElwain is a strong candidate for the Central Michigan Chippewas head coaching job, according to FootballScoop. He just completed his first season at Michigan.

Central Michigan is looking for a head coach after firing John Bonamego. They had a 1-11 record in 2018.
