If the former’s last identify appears familiar, it truly is simply because he is the son of longtime Michigan Condition head mentor and athletic director George Perles.
The youthful Perles played linebacker at MSU and graduated from there in 1987, in advance of expending time on the staffs of numerous NFL and collegiate teams, which includes Toledo (defensive line), the Los Angeles Rams (defensive assistant in 1992), Michigan Condition (limited finishes, 2000-02), North Dakota Condition (offensive coordinator, 2005-08), the Kansas Town Chiefs (linebackers and offensive line, 2009-11), Syracuse (offensive line, 2013) and most lately was a scout for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Prior to his stint with the Bulldogs, Casula acted as the offensive coordinator and assistant mentor at Davenport from 2014-16, and was even their interim head mentor to near out his tenure there.
Right before Davenport, Casula served the limited finishes and H-backs mentor at Colgate in 2013, limited finishes and fullbacks mentor for Western Michigan in 2012, and worked as a graduate assistant with the Broncos’ offensive line in 2010 and 2011.
Larkins, meanwhile, joined Bethune-Cookman in 2015, and used the 2014 marketing campaign as the cornerbacks/particular teams mentor at Jacksonville Condition.
Prior to his time with JSU, Larkins used eight decades with The Citadel, where he led their defensive backs, linebackers and particular teams.
He coached defensive backs at Wagner in 2005, the exact place at Holy Cross in 2004, and bought his coaching profession begun as a college student assistant at Lehigh (his alma mater) in 2003.
These moves by U-M are just the latest in what has been a occupied coaching carousel for the Wolverines as of late.
Head mentor Jim Harbaugh noticed defensive coaches Al Washington and Greg Mattison the two depart for Ohio Condition in January, even though bringing in offensive coordinator Josh Gattis (from Alabama) and defensive mentor Anthony Campanile (Boston School) that exact thirty day period.
