McElwain takes C. Michigan job after year as Wolverine aide

MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. (AP) Michigan receivers coach Jim McElwain has been named head coach at Central Michigan.

Central Michigan announced McElwain's hiring Sunday. He replaces John Bonamego, who went 1-11 in his fourth season after taking the Chippewas to three straight bowls.

The 56-year-old McElwain was at Michigan for one season. He previously coached at Florida, where he was Southeastern Conference coach of the year in his first season (2015) and went 22-12 overall.

The Gators won SEC East titles his first two years. After a 3-4 start in 2017, McElwain said he and his family had received death threats. His claim couldn't be substantiated and he parted ways with Florida, agreeing to a $7.5 million buyout.

CMU athletic director Michael Alford called McElwain a "proven winner."
