ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) Less than a year after taking over Michigan's athletic department, Dave Brandon hired Brady Hoke to be his football coach.
Now, with that football program floundering through a dismal season, Brandon is done as athletic director. Will Hoke be the next to go?
That's the most obvious question after Brandon's resignation, which was announced by school President Mark Schlissel on Friday. Michigan named Jim Hackett interim athletic director, and Schlissel indicated Hackett could potentially have a say in whether Hoke returns after this season.
