Dear Coach Hoke,
Thank you for your devotion the Michigan football program. You have helped my alma mater more than you will ever realize. I truly look forward to your success in your next head coaching job. I want you to succeed as much as your predecessor has at Arizona. Let the UM Athletic Department continue to think it is their coaching hires that have been the problem.
There are many things I will follow when you get that new head coaching job. Will you recruit four and five star high school athletes and try to be their father by letting them run the show, or will you begin to recruit lesser athletes and mold them into a team like the current B1G coach up the road?
When a student athlete on your team gets in trouble with the law, and they will, do you take decisive action to send a message to your team or continue wait and let the legal system run its course before making a decision?
When you are invited to attend a local high school football camp will you send an assistant and have him turn it into a recruiting trip or would you like him to treat it as a training camp as it was meant to be?
And finally, I will be interested to see if you take your new team to an 11-2 record and a bowl win in your first year without any of your personal recruits.
All the best to you and your future endeavors.
P.S. One more thing I'll look for once you land your new head coaching job with another team. I wonder if you will look unkindly toward offered recruits who desire to visit other college programs before making a final decision on their college career. Or will that be an attitude reserved only for the Ann Arbor program?
