I was in Ann Arbor a week and a half ago, and spent part of one day with friends at their home. While our wives and children were talking and playing, my host took me around town to see new buildings on the main and athletic campuses, and a few other things in the area.
Our first stop was only a couple blocks away: he showed me the progress on the building of Coach Hoke's new home, which looks close to completion. (I had my camera, with a telephoto, but didn't feel like taking pictures and wouldn't post them anyway.) Regardless, the house looks very nice, and is only 10 minutes or so from the athletic campus. Without going into any detail, I couldn't see Hoke building a home like this without a commitment to stick around a long time. Although I don't know square footage, it also looks like there is plenty of room for Brady & Laura to entertain, and to welcome family for game weekend sleepovers.
Another friend happens to be members of the same church where Mattison (and Hoke?) attend. They ended up chatting briefly with Mattison because my friend's wife was talking to Mattison's daughter, and admiring his grandchild, when he came up. They wouldn't have felt comfortable intruding into Mattison's personal space, but he was the one who came and talked with them.
The long and short of this post is that the coaching staff is around for the long haul. I just can't see Mattison leaving his family . . . his wife would shoot him! And I suspect he is too much of a coach and having too much fun to retire anytime soon. As for Hoke, we all know the "this is Michigan, for God's sake" meme. He, and all his staff, are home where they belong. I'm looking forward to Hoke continuing as coach at Michigan for many years. We as Michigan fans are extremely fortunate to have him and his staff.
