a vitally important recap of all the dumb tweets sent during the Harbaugh coaching search
This article in Rivals mentions a few very probable hires that will be coming with Hoke from his SDSU staff. Underwhelming at first glance. One of them coaches running backs which could be bad for the re-hire of Fred Jackson, but the guy has other position experience so perhaps FJ will be retained. We need Fred for continuity and to solidify Hayes and Rawls (should he qualify) and of course for his unique analytical skills
let's at least get his DC.
Dan Gerberry is now the backup Center to Dominic Raiola for the Detroit Lions. He played for Brady Hoke at Ball State for four years. In this article he gave a little insight as to what may happen in Michigan's upcoming practice.

Speaking of running, I believe that Stephen Hopkins will see a big jump in his number of carries for this upcoming year. I'm sure Hoke wont shy away from a 230 pound RB.
When Rich Rod was hired and kids started transfering out he coined the phrase"I do not talk about players that do not play for the University of Michigan", or something along these lines. Rich Rod is no longer our coach. His time is done. To continually make comparisons between Hoke and Rich Rod does both coaches a disservice. It is time to move on. Thanks Rich, good luck where ever you land, and all the best to you and your family during this transition.
