Hoke terminated by the Wolverines

The University of Michigan has fired head football coach Brady Hoke after four seasons. Hoke posted a 31-20 record at Michigan, but never improved on an 11-2 mark and Sugar Bowl title in his first season with the Wolverines. They went 5-7 overall this season, including 3-5 in the Big Ten, marking the program’s first losing season since going 5-7 in 2009 under Rich Rodriguez. The 56-year old Hoke was hired as the 19th head coach at Michigan after Rodriguez was fired following just three seasons at the helm and a 15-22 record. Hoke coached San Diego State for two season before coming to Michigan, going 13-12 overall. Prior to his stint with the Aztecs, he coached at Ball State, his alma mater, for six seasons. In 2008, the team went 12-1 with an 8-0 record in the Mid- American Conference. Hoke was 34-38 at Ball State with a 27-20 mark in the MAC.  (MRN)
