In an announcement this afternoon, interim Michigan Athletic director Jim Hackett announced that Coach Brady Hoke has been relieved of his duties effective immediately.
Hoke becomes the second coach terminated within the B1G Ten, joining Nebraska’s Bo Pelini, who was let go on Sunday after a 9-3 season. Somehow Tim Beckman and Kevin Wilson are still employed.
Hoke is 31-20 in his tenure in Ann Arbor, and was 5-7 this season. He is 1-3 in The Game, and winless against Urban Meyer.
After going 11-2 with Rich Rodriguez players his first season (including a BCS victory over Virginia Tech), Hoke has struggled to continue the momentum for the Wolverines. His staff recruited well during the summers, but repeatedly saw recruits switch to other programs before on on National Signing Day.
It has also not been announced who will coach Michigan in their bowl game in January.
