Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.
Thoughts and prayers coach.
Take all the time you need, B
Big Ups to Mr. Hoke for fathering a child who would later go on to coach our beloved football program. He raised a good man. Double Hoke Point towards the sky on that one.
I hope and pray Coach Hoke can get through this difficult time. Hopefully he can be comforted by the fact that his father got to see him obtain his dream position and have a very successful first season.
RIP. My thoughts are with coach Hoke and his family.
rest in peace, awesome to know how much this job meant to john when brady was hired, sure seems he taught his son all
RIP to John and prayers to the Hoke family
I'd like to think that Mr. Hoke is sitting down right now with Bo enjoying a cold beer and making fun of Woody for punching that kid during the Gator Bowl.
Rest in Peace, John. Thoughts and prayers to the entire Hoke family. He must have been a great man to raise and instill in Coach Hoke such solid principles.
It sounds like the family probably got to say goodbyes if he was at that stage but its always tough. Prayers for Coach Hoke and family...
Having lost my own father to Cancer as a teenager, I feel for Coach Hoke and his family. In life, sometimes we try to "prepare" ourselves when a loved one is terminally ill, but as much as we try to "prepare" ourselves, you never are "ready" to lose a loved one. Even though Coach Hoke is in his 50's, it's still a tough thing for a son to deal with losing his father, no matter the age. My thoughts and prayers are with the Hoke family.
May God rest him and keep him safe.
My thoughts and prayers are with the Hoke family.
My thoughts and prayers go out to the Hoke family.
Thoughts and prayers to the Hoke family. At least he got to see his son fulfill his dream.
It's always tough to lose a parent. Hang in there, Coach.
Condolences to the Hoke family and their friends and thanks to John Hoke for raising a man of the utmost integrity and character.
to the Hoke family!
as well as condolences to the friends, acquaintences, and family of Mr. Hoke, and of course to you too, Coach Hoke...
and the entire Hoke family
May Mr. Hoke Rest In Peace...
...may our players practice in his memory and practice harder than they ever have in their lives this spring.
RIP. Condolences to Coach Hoke & family.
Coach Hoke, we love you and our prayers are with you. Must have been one hell of a father and man judging by how you turned out. At least he got to see his boy fulfill his dreams and coach a spectacular season at Michigan before he passed.
If Coach Hoke is any reflection on how good this man was as a father, then he had to have been a goddamn good father. Thoughts and prayers to the family.
Rest in peace, Mr. Hoke. Prayers for the whole Hoke family.
My thoughts are with Hoke and his family. His father will be watching over him and this team and be proud, I'm sure of it.
My thoughts and prayers for the Hoke family and friends.
My condolences to the Hoke family
I just wanted to pass along the condolences from Spartan Nation:
Sorry for your loss Coach Hoke.
The up-votes are from the original title "Coach Hoke's Father Dies." And half of the posts have been deleted.
An unfortunate loss the Hoke family.
RIP John. Cancer took my dad 13 years ago. Stomach cancer and when the docs opened up dad to take a look, they closed him right back up. It had spread to the liver, gall bladder and intestines. Two weeks in a hospice and no more. The last hour with my dad was spent watching a Jim Brown special. Football was a bonding experience for him and myself.
I lost my mom to lung cancer in Dec. A mere 20 days after she was diagnosed. It's still hard to deal with. My thoughts and prayers to the whole Hoke clan.
Rest in peace. I'm sure he was one hell of a guy. Their family is in my thoughts and prayers.
I've always wanted to give Brady Hoke a hug, and today is no exception.
well, am not kidding when I say this but after seeing papa Hoke's interview after Brady's first press conference, I wanted to hug papa Hoke instead, for a fine job he did raising our coach.
My thoughts and prayers are with Coach Hoke and his family. May peace and comfort bless him and his family.
But I can't imagine a much better time to go. You've just watched your son achieve his number one goal in life, beat Ohio State, win the Sugar Bowl and cement the Hoke family name in the pages of history for ... well... forever. When it's time for me to go, I hope I can feel even a fraction as satisfied with my life and the legacy my family will leave.
Hoke. RIP Sir.

May your soul rise like a lion.
for your loss Coach Hoke.
Sorry for your loss Coach Hoke. I'll be remembering you and your family in my prayers tonight.
Rest In Paradise Mr. Hoke and may the good Lord bring peace to the family. Mr.John Hoke has definitely left a legacy to be proud of in the seeds he has planted.
Thoughts and prayers go out to Coach Hoke and his family. I lost my dad to lung cancer at a young age. Spent over six months driving back and forth to Butterworth to spend time with him. A horrible disease indeed.
Must be very hard to lose your father. I can only thank God today that the relationships within my family are strong; an unconditional bond. I lost my grandfather a few months ago to lymphoma, and I assure you there was much grief and despair followed by a rekindled strength and unity that I can only hope finds its way into the Hoke family.
I'm sure this unfortunate situation has reached the team as well, and I hope/pray the residual by products of loss will evoke a strong sense of unification and passion in Hoke and Team 133.
Thoughts and prayers to the entire family.
My thougths and best wishes are with him and his family during this hard time. Any father who could have someone like Coach Hoke as a son must have been a great father and a great man.
