Third Domino Falls: Brady Hoke To Michigan

Official release from MGoBlue:

University of Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon announced today (Tuesday, Jan. 11) the hiring of Brady Hoke as the 19th coach in the 131-year history of Michigan football. Hoke arrives in Ann Arbor after spending the past eight seasons as a head coach at Ball State (2003-08) and San Diego State (2009-10).

"We are pleased to announce the hiring of Brady," said Brandon. "He is a terrific coach and will be a great ambassador and leader for our football program. We look forward to having him build a championship program on the field and in the classroom."

Now we will have to see whether Hoke take Al Borges and Rocky Long with him to Ann Arbor. Borges himself might be a candidate to succeed Hoke at SDSU while Long might be applying for an open position at Texas State. As for Michigan - as Patroclus noted previously - a Hoke hiring could be disappointing to lot of fans in Ann Arbor.

If we were around when UCLA hired Karl Dorrell our posts might have read something like this or this. He has a big task ahead of him to unify that divided fan base. Good luck to him and the Wolverines. We hope something will happen on the UCLA front sometime soon.
