Brady Hoke Out At Michigan: Jim Harbaugh Not A Candidate
So Brady Hoke has been informed that his services will no longer be required in Ann Arbor, according to several reports. That was inevitable. But here's the real question: who will trend higher on Twitter today, Hoke or Jim Harbaugh?
The somewhat-embattled 49ers' head coach has been linked to every job from the Oakland Raiders to Jacksonville Jaguars, but lurking in the background was always Michigan, where he played QB and developed much of his coaching philosophy. However:
According to FootballScoop.com, Harbaugh told Michigan today that he is not a candidate for the job.
Footballscoop.com also reported that Tennessee coach Butch Jones, a Michigan native who had great success as Central Michigan's coach in the mid-2000s, will not be a candidate and that a source said "Michigan is struggling to find their next head coach."
So the search in on to replace Hoke, who was 31-20 in four seasons, including a 11-2 record in 2011 with a Sugar Bowl win, and 5-7 campaign this season.
