About this speaker

Chris Partridge is in his fourth full season as special teams coordinator in 2019 and his second year as safeties coach after mentoring the linebackers in his first two years on staff. Partridge has helped lead a defensive unit which has ranked among the nation's best since he joined the U-M staff. U-M has ranked first or second nationally in pass defense in each of the last three seasons, and has been one of the most stout third-down defenses in the country over that span. Michigan's special teams have also seen an uptick under Partridge. Before being elevated to the coaching staff, Partridge had been the Wolverines' director of player personnel in recruiting since joining the staff in January 2015 until Coach Harbaugh appointed him to coach the team's linebackers. Partridge came to Ann Arbor after serving as the head coach at New Jersey's Paramus Catholic High School, a position he held for five seasons (2010-14). Prior to his stint at Paramus, Partridge served as the defensive line coach and assistant to the special teams at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina.Partridge coached at his alma mater, Lafayette College, in Easton, Pennsylvania, as the secondary coach and assistant to the special teams coordinator.
