Who replaces Brady Hoke if he gets canned?

The writing seems to be on the wall. Who takes over for him if he's gone within the next two years?

I don't see any way Harbaugh goes back to the college game, no matter what happens with him and the Niners. And I'm not sure Les Miles is allowed back. So I don't really have any ideas

I wouldn't want to face Lane! Let's not forget he would have beat Bama had mount Cody not blocked 2 FG, he also improved the qb play greatly while at Tennessee and can recruit with the best of them!

I don't give a shit because we will crush them regardless. We have a winning record against those worthless bastards since the US won the Second World War.  However, I do hope they get rejected by their first 5 candidates like during their last hiring process.

You obviously don't know how the last hire went down if you think UM got rejected by 5 candidates lol...because that is the furthest thing from the truth...

Hahahaha. So Richrod was your guys' first choice?  Lmao. I dunno, the names harbaugh and miles come to mind quickly as a couple of examples. Or are you talking about a coach named hoke with a losing record at ball state and a record at San diego state that was barely over 500?  I'm sorry that you're angry, I would be too if we got rejected and had to resort to that.  But, man those games in the early 1900s were badass.  

Oh, and thanks for the downvote.  I'll hit you back after we annihilate you in November.

Lets not forget the Rutgers coach, Greg Schiono, that choose to keep "chopping wood," at Rutgers rather than take a step back and go to scUM.

Read three and out if you want to know. I dont have time to rehash it on here. Short and skinny an offer was never made to miles or Schiano, and harbaugh wanted to go to the nfl. Read the book if you dont believe me.

I've always referred to him as Brady '5th choice' Hoke. I think it's actually true if I remember right.

And then I told her...i'm no weatherman, but tonight's forecast is calling for several inches!

Mark it down. After Hoke shows complete incompetence yet another season, We see either Mattison or Nussmeier as the new HC. No worthy candidate currently outside the program will touch it and there's a reason Mattison and Nussmeier were brought in.

Life's daily struggle is choosing between saying F--ck-it, or soldiering on with your responsibilities.

Mattison is old, though. Nuss could be groomed. Worst case scenario for Ohio State is a Harbaugh.

I hope you're right. Have either been a head coach at a major program? It'd be hilarious to see scUM have to resort to that.

If Penn state can get a quality coach like James franklin with the shit that is going on there, Michigan should be able to hire a decent coach. The other question is do you also fire Dave Brandon?

The other question is legit.

Doesn't seem like Brandon is winning them over right now.

If they get get over the circle jerk of getting a "michigan man" and not run good coaches out of town, then they can move forward. It is fun to watch their failure though.

Poison nuts's picture

To answer this question seriously, I think they would do everything they could to get Les Miles. After Urban Meyer came to OSU, Franklin to PSU & Dantonio crushing it at MSU, UM would want a monster hire. I suspect they'd go hard after Miles, forgive whatever problem they have with him & open the wallet. That said, I hope Brady stays another 50-100 years.

The problem was a byproduct of the rigidity of Bill Martin, backed by Mary Sue Coleman. Otherwise, Les Miles would be in AA, most likely.

seafus26's picture

I wouldn't mind them getting Miles. We live down here and you won't meet many Tiger fans that don't agree, they are winning in spite of Miles poor clock management, relations with players and personnel decisions.They are winning what they care with the immense amount of Louisiana and Texas talent that that football program and beautiful, unique campus can pull in. In Ann Arbor, he would be exposed for the overrated lug that he is without fertile recruiting grounds. I will give him this, the kids love him in the recruiting process down here. But these same kid's back ups in high school down here could out play the kids he'd have close access to in Canada, err michigan.

He knows the recruiting grounds, knows to to beat State.  Would need to find a solid O coordinator, but it would be solid for them.  It's gonna cost them though Hoke has a 2MM buy out clause for the last two years of his contract which is up in 2016

Jim Delaney might put up that 2MM if this season is not stellar for TSUN.

Mangino is a helluva coach ... These PC sissys in today's university setting need to be  more tolerable of a guy like him, it's called "tough love", and it works. Look at the turnaround miracle he did with Kansas.

I've heard from a pretty reliable source that barring some miracle 11-2, 12-1 season, that Hoke is cooked. Doesn't matter that Brandon has a man-crush on him, the alumni and boosters are fed up.

I'd like to see them hire someone with NO ties to the Buckeye State. I'm not sure they know how to do that or could survive if they didn't.

I think they go hard after a Harbaugh 1st, Miles 2nd.  After that, I think you have to go to the coordinator ranks.  Narduzzi makes sense-would be a Woody/Bo situation with those 2 schools and would be fun to watch.

Here's a name that may come up, much like it did this past offseason with a major program-Nick Saban.  He had some success at MSU, but would he see it as his career coming full circle, by coming back to the B1G?

Whoever it is one thing is for certain. And that is they will be half the man Hoke is. That much we can be assured.

No way Miles leaves LSU for UM. He cherry picks best Southern talent. At UM he'd have to work much harder and he'd still get lesser talent. The  talent differential covers his shortcomings as a coach; he'd be exposed at UM.
