Finotti first joined Michigan’s staff as Director of Football Operations in 2015 and was an analyst in 2016.
He was head coach at St. Edward from 2009-2014, winning two state championships and going 62-15 in his six seasons.
Finotti replaces Tom Arth, who led the Blue Streaks to a 12-2 season in 2016, reaching the Division III Semifinal.
Arth went 40-8 in four seasons at John Carroll and became head coach at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, a Football Championship Subdivision school, following the 2016 season.
Finotti has big shoes to fill, but with a local connection and pedigree like his, the Blue Streaks could have another recipe for success.
