Michigan’s new coach has a serious passion for the school; we learned that right away from his news conference today as Brady Hoke met with the media in Ann Arbor. Hoke refused to call Ohio State by name and referring to them as “that school in Ohio”. Hoke added that he is going to establish a foundation of toughness at U of M and kept reiterating that Michigan is about the program as a whole. Take a listen entire news conference below.
David Brandon says he offered Hoke the job and he accepted it right away even without a salary offer, that is how badly he wanted this Job. Brandon even taking a shot at Jim Harbaugh by saying Brady is about the team, not himself unlike other coaches. Brandon says its complete bologna that anyone would think Mary Sue Coleman nixed any other candidates. Hoke gets a six year contract from Michigan.
As far as Tate Forcier is concerned Brandon said today that he is not with the program at this time.
