Michigan football contracts Korn Ferry firm to aid in coaching search


Michigan has contracted Korn Ferry, the world's largest executive search firm, to help with its current search to find a replacement for the recently fired Brady Hoke.

Per the athletic department, Michigan will pay Korn Ferry a minimum of $80,000, but nothing more than $250,000 depending on the amount of work that is needed during the search.

"Our process is moving along and many potential candidates have reached out and expressed an interest in the position. Korn Ferry is screening applicants, narrowing that list and identifying the best possible candidates for our institution," a Michigan spokesman said in a statement. "As (interim athletic director) Jim Hackett stated during his press conference, we don't believe that it's appropriate to comment on any potential candidates or the institutions or organizations they currently may be employed by during this search.

"We hope that you understand that we can't compromise the integrity of our search process by commenting prematurely."[/quote]
