Michigan Football: Will Dave Brandon Offer the Job to Brady Hoke?
Michigan football has missed out on Les Miles and Jim Harbaugh, but Brady Hoke could be their next target, and it appears athletic director Dave Brandon is on his way to San Diego to discuss a possible job offer with the San Diego State front man.
Hoke served as the defensive line coach under Lloyd Carr at Michigan from 1995-2002, and is a Michigan fan. This year, he took the Aztecs to a 9-4 record and a 35-14 victory over Navy in the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl.
With the more notable options out of the picture, Hoke could have a harmonious homecoming on the horizon. Enthusiasm will not be a concern for Brandon, and assuredly Hoke couldn't count out the idea of returning to a larger program, this time as a head coach.
Other options are rumored to be Mike Leach, the disgraced former Texas Tech head coach, and Ralph Friedgen, the former Maryland coach who was fired despite successes at the program.
Neither Leach nor Friedgen seems like a good fit in Ann Arbor, where a quiet demeanor and tradition observation reign supreme. Hoke seems like the best fit, although not the most successful option.
