ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Michigan coach Brady Hoke says he expects junior Devin Gardner to get a fifth year of eligibility.

Hoke says documentation for Gardner’s medical-redshirt request is being sent to the Big Ten.

Gardner started the last four games of the regular season at quarterback. He was limited to three games as a freshman at least in part because of a back injury. If a medical hardship is granted, Gardner will be eligible to play during the 2013 and 2014 seasons.

Gardner was recruited as a QB and moved to receiver this year to get on the field with Denard Robinson. When Robinson hurt his right elbow, Gardner went back under center and had success until the 21st-ranked Wolverines lost 26-21 Saturday at Ohio State.
