Michigan Hires Brady Hoke

MGoBlue.com is reporting that Brady Hoke will be the next head coach at The University of Michigan. He has accumulated an overall coaching record of 47-50, and a bowl record of 1-1 at stops at Ball State and San Diego State. His best year was 12-1 in 2008 at Ball State. He was then hired to coach SDSU and missed his team's bowl loss. That 2008 team featured BSU's all time leading passer, their number 2 and 3 career receiving yardage leaders, and a RB who is now their #2 rusher.

Prior to becoming the head man at Ball State, he served as the DL coach and associate head coach at Michigan from 1997-2002. The recurring theme, if you hadn't noticed, is that David Brandon wanted a coach with Michigan ties. Harbaugh, Miles, and now Hoke.

This will never be considered a glamorous hire, but maybe it is what Michigan was looking for after the Rich Rod experiment.  This is a move that can't be measured for a few years until he gets "his guys" in the mix. He is accustomed to running the more pro-style offense Michigan is used to. There aren't any options on the roster at QB, and with signing day less than a month away, it may be a tough 2011 season if he tries to run his offense with this roster. Think of it as a bizzarro  2008 with Tate playing the role of Threet/Sheridan.

At least its over with. There is closure for the fans, and well there's the bright side.
