Michigan interim AD says Brady Hoke will be evaluated after season


Michigan interim athletic director Jim Hackett says he will wait until after the season to decide whether to retain Brady Hoke as head football coach. 

"I'm putting that question off until the end of the season, really rooting for them to do the best they can," Hackett told WOOD. "I'm totally behind them and I'm really happy since I've been in the job, we're 2-0."

Hackett took over as interim AD when Dave Brandon resigned on Oct. 31

Hoke is 12-11 since the start of the 2013 season. The Wolverines need one win in their final two games to avoid missing a bowl game for the first time since the 2009 season.

In addition to his mediocre performance, Hoke has also drawn criticism for player safety concerns. During a game against Minnesota in September, quarterback Shane Morris sustained a concussion but was not immediately removed from the game. Brandon later apologized for how the situation was handled.
