Former Razorbacks director of strength and conditioning Ben Herbert, who served under Bret Bielema for several seasons at Wisconsin and Arkansas, is headed to Michigan, according to multiple reports.

Herbert will replace Kevin Tolbert for the Wolverines, who Jim Harbaugh fired two weeks ago. Herbert was gone when Bielema was fired after the season finale against Missouri the day after Thanksgiving.

Herbert will bring plenty of familiarity with the Big Ten to his new job with the Wolverines, spending 11 seasons on the strength and conditioning staff at Wisconsin, which is his alma mater.

Herbert followed Bielema to Arkansas after the former Badgers head coach left Madison for Fayetteville after the 2012 season.
