"Jim's a tough guy and you can see his personality is all over this football team," Fitzgerald said.
A great honor and well deserved. We're glad you are back, Coach Hoke.
It was almost a given, but still awesome anyways; hopefully a National one will follow too
And I wonder what Drew Sharp and Rosenberg voted, both have said how Dantonio is more deserving.
Epic double points to yourself
Nice grats to him. He deserved it.
Congrats to him and a great 2011 season for Michigan football
And well deserved.
And the rest of the staff for a tremendous job this season
A well-deserved award at that too. Awesome job, Coach Hoke!
With Brian's permission, your MGoPoints will be in the mail.
No love for Zook? Tough crowd...
Coach of the Year, Michigan Man, and able to change the tide of rivalries with jersey sales.
again as it should be.
something about Team 132 earning this honor, not him. Great job to coach and your assistants. An honor well deserved.
He's wearing a jacket.
I was hoping his response would include "well" and "tremendous" and he didn't disappoint.
Two reactions from me:
1) Awesome, great work coach.
Great for Hoke! Blessing for us. Looking forward to watching him give Urban a firm hand shake at midfield next November as he tells him better luck next year.
For someone "everyone" thought was settling 11 months ago.
Congrats to Coach Hoke and the 132nd Michigan Wolverines team.
returning to glory ... since 1993.
I have been visiting some OSU sites and their fans can't believe Urban Meyer didn't win it!!!
Congrats Coach Hoke!!! Here's to many more!
Go BLUE!!! Coach Hoke is well deserving of this award.
Maybe we should vote Hoke as the Wolverine Coach of the Decade!
Not much competition in 2011.
Posted in the wrong place.
As he should. Go Blue!
Good on him! Glad to see him succeed after all the pissing and moaning when he was hired. :)
What does a guy have to do to get a little love around here?
He will probably be giving more interviews, talking about how the old guard teams are not relevant anymore, it's a new era, blah, blah, blah.
Fickell was robbed!
Great job by Coach Hoke, his coaches and of course his players.
A friend in MMB told me Hoke visited a band rehearsal with the team the week before the first game. He got up and spoke with the band gave his praises and the like and then turned to his team and asked them if they were ready for the Western game. They all said "Yeah!" to which Hoke replied "No you're not."
Congrats Coach, well deserved
Funny.....no mention of this yet on Bucknuts but RCMB is not very happy......apparently there's been a mistake and Dantonio was supposed to get this.
Go Blue.........the first of many accolades to come to Coach Hoke.
Surprisingly though, they aren't spiteful. Almost reasonable, if I dare say...
because encouraging unnecessary roughness and enabling Gholston's behavior are traits voters are looking for.
Congrats Coach Hoke! I can hear the Sparties whine from here!
It's good to win an award.
(... or is it now LEGENDS AND BEST...????...)
Congratulations to him... and, let's say it like it is, to Dave Brandon! DB took a lot of flack, but that was a rabbit in that hat.
*** on a personal note... had to use my #500 post for something uber-positive!!!!
is a bad ass
Does anyone know if Brian Kelly got the Independant COY award? I think it was either him for the 3-9 Army coach. /sarcasm
I'm proud of this team and happy for the program! Good on you Coach Hoke!
