The murmurs of discontent that began during Brady Hoke’s second campaign turned into cries of frustration as Michigan slid to a 7-6 finish last season. Hoke shook things up in the offseason—jettisoning offensive coordinator Al Borges for Doug Nussmeier and shuffling his defensive coaches.
Last season’s disappointing 7-6 record forced Brady Hoke to make big offseason changes to get Michigan back on track. Gone is offensive coordinator Al Borges, replaced with great fanfare by Doug Nussmeier, formerly of Alabama. He also shuffled the responsibilities of his defensive coaches in hopes of solidifying a defense that surrendered late leads to Penn State and Iowa besides giving up over a hundred combined points to Indiana (63) and Ohio State (42).
