Michigan AD says Hoke is right coach

Brady Hoke Michigan

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon says Brady Hoke is the right guy to lead college football's winningest program.

Brandon told The Associated Press on Monday morning that no one was more disappointed than Hoke, his staff and players after Michigan State beat the Wolverines 29-6.

The man who fired Rich Rodriguez and hired Hoke in 2011 says it was tough to watch film of the game with the coaches on Sunday. Brandon gives the Spartans a lot of credit for getting young offensive linemen out of sync and sacking Devin Gardner seven times.

Michigan has fallen out of The Associated Press poll with two losses in its last three games. The Wolverines close the regular season by hosting Nebraska, playing at Northwestern and Iowa and hosting Ohio State.
