This season will be Brady Hoke's ninth as a head coach, prior to accepting the Michigan job, he made a six-year stop at Ball State and a two-year stop at San Diego State. These two teams may not be very prestigious, but he still did a great job with both of them and led each team to many great wins.
In Brady Hoke's last year as head coach at Ball State, he had a 12-1 record; the year after Hoke left, Ball State went 1-11. This just shows how much Hoke meant to that program. Brady Hoke did not just turn both teams around, he made the teams better than ever.
Based on Hoke's past, there is no doubt that he will be able to turn this team around and lead them to many great wins. This is what David Brandon saw in Brady Hoke when he decided to hire him as the next head football coach of the University of Michigan.
