University of Michigan head coach Brady Hoke has been voted Big Ten Coach of the Year by the media and his fellow coaches, according to a tweet from Wolverine’s official Twitter account.

In his first year with Michigan, Hoke led his team to a 10-2 finish, including a 6-2 record in the Big Ten. He also helped coach the Wolverines to their first victory over arch-rival Ohio State University since 2002. The team finished the season ranked No. 17 overall in the AP Poll.

Last year, Michigan finished the season 7-5 after beginning the season 5-0. The late season collapse, which was capped by a 7-37 loss to Ohio State, ultimately led to the firing of then head coach Rich Rodriguez.
