Brady Hoke: Devin Gardner and Michigan coaches will all return
Michigan coach Brady Hoke says quarterback Devin Gardner and all his assistants will return next season.
Michigan may have just finished the regular season with a 7-5 record, but if you were expecting some major changes to be made to the coaching staff in Ann Arbor, Brady Hoke has some bad news for you.
Hoke told reporters that the entire Michigan coaching staff would be returning next season, as will quarterback Devin Gardner.
There had been some speculation that Michigan might look to replace offensive coordinator Al Borges after the offense struggled in Big Ten play this season. While the Wolverines scored 41 points against Ohio State on Saturday and 63 points against Indiana in October, it averaged only 24.8 points per game in its other six Big Ten contests, and that includes seven overtimes. Take out those overtime sessions and the number drops to 20.8 points per game.
All that being said, having Devin Gardner return for his senior season -- which was expected -- should help matters on offense next season. Gardner got beat up a bit this season playing behind a young offensive line, but he finished with 3,443 total yards and 32 total touchdowns. If he can get some better protection next season and cut down on the turnovers -- Gardner threw 11 interceptions -- Michigan's offense should improve by default.
