ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Bottom line, Brady Hoke's four year run at Michigan simply wasn't good enough to warrant a fifth season.
Interim athletic director Jim Hackett made that call Tuesday afternoon firing Hoke in a meeting while explaining a search for a new coach would begin immediately.
Hoke's career at Michigan began with a surprising 11-2 finish in 2011, culmanating in a Sugar Bowl victory over Virginia Tech.
From there, the Wolverines plummetted, finishing 8-5 a year later, followed by 7-6 in 2013 and recently wrapping up a 5-7 campaign following Saturday's 42-28 loss at Ohio State.
Sam Webb and Kyle Bogenschutz discuss Hackett's decision to fire Hoke and dissect what exactly went wrong throughout his brief stint in charge of the Michigan Wolverines.
