Hoke said he feels badly about the attention Morris has received in the wake of the concussion and Michigan’s handling of it.
“… But I’ll also make clear that I don’t make decisions when injuries [are involved] … and that shouldn’t be a coach’s decision.”
With how the Athletic Department has handled the Shane Morris incident, people have taken to the internet to voice their displeasure.
Hoke said Monday that he hasn’t spoken with athletic director Dave Brandon recently about his handling of Morris or his job performance in general.
Four-star recruit Darian Roseboro announced on Twitter Monday night that he has decommitted from the Wolverines program.
Michigan had just 106 yards of total offense and Morris had thrown eight consecutive incomplete passes when Gardner entered the game with 11:17 left in the fourth quarter.
Devin Gardner and Shane Morris are Michigan’s two main options at quarterback, and Hoke hasn’t said who will start Saturday against Minnesota.
Apparently, sales of Michigan football tickets are so dreadful that they are being given away with a “purchase of any two Coca-Cola products.”
Fifth-year senior quarterback Devin Gardner ranks No. 65 nationally in passer rating (132.4), with more interceptions (six) than touchdowns (five) in four starts.
“We’ll see what happens,” Hoke said. “I think that’s the best way to put it.”
