2014 has been rough for Michigan head coach Brady Hoke—first he fired offensive coordinator Al Borges, replacing him with Doug Nussmeier, formerly of Alabama. Then earlier this week he had to address the dismissal of kicker Brendan Gibbons.
According to Matt Slovin and Adam Rubenfire of The Michigan Daily, Gibbons was dismissed from the university for violating its Student Sexual Misconduct Policy during an incident that occurred in 2009.
The disappointing result caused discontent among Michigan fans, but athletic director David Brandon went on the record on mgoblue.com to support Hoke’s leadership.
As Michigan prepares for the 2014 season, the pressure is on.
Fans hope that this recruiting class will fill key gaps in Michigan’s roster and propel the team past a disappointing 7-6 campaign where it dropped five out of its final six games and was swept by rivals Ohio State and Michigan State.
