With allegations of a Hoke cover up, this Gibbons case becomes more interesting. The Hoke honeymoon is over in Ann Arbor and it looks like UM could be having some buyers remorse. Hoke has never won anywhere, boasting just 2 more wins than Urban Meyer (with an extra season under his belt), an overall record of 76-63 and a bowl record of 2-3. After his 11-1 season, UM has gone 15-11.
After finishing a career worst 5th in the Legends, UM takes their dirty secret out from under their carpet. What else? Hoke is said to be the one with the broom.
Likely, UM has a clause in Hoke's contract allowing for termination without compensation for this type of situation. Coincidence Gibbons is allowed to kick until Hoke's worst season and the UM-Hike honeymoon has ended? I think not.
