Update: Hart reportedly had a seizure on the sideline. He was taken to the hospital in an ambulance to undergo further evaluation.

After Michigan struggled to establish their run game in the first half, their second half rushing attempts looked much more characteristically dominant. Blake Corum led the team with 124 yards over 25 carries.

Michigan running backs coach Mike Hart collapsed on the sideline at Indiana University Memorial Stadium in the first quarter of the Wolverines’ game against the Hoosiers. The former Michigan running back was brought off the field on the medical cart. Hart was a running backs coach at Indiana from 2017 to 2020 before being hired at Michigan.

Hart holds the record for career rushing yards at Michigan, reaching 5,040 yards in his time there. His protege, RB Blake Corum, has been having a breakout season and started the game with a 50-yard run and a touchdown on the next play.

The second-year coach played for the Indianapolis Colts for three years before moving to college coaching. He has also coached at Eastern Michigan, Western Michigan, and Syracuse.

The cause of Hart’s collapse is unclear. He was able to give a thumbs up as he was carted off the field.

Updates to come.
