interim Athletic Director Jim Hackett is the sole determiner of Hoke's fate.
"We have a football coach who
has had a long history of being a
good coach. He knows we're not
where we need to be right now."
Jim Hackett on Nov. 22

Hackett to meet
with Hoke before 3
p.m. this afternoon
Daily Sports Editor
When Brady Hoke
walked through the lobby of
Schembechler Hall at about
11:45 a.m. Monday morning,
speculation about his job statua
swirled in the outside world.
But Hoke still seemed focused
on coaching football. A group
of his players stood conversing
in the entryway to the building,
and Hoke made sure to ask
them if they'd had the chance to
watch game film yet.
According to reports from
Sam Webb of Scout.com,
Tuesday will have a different
feel for Hoke. He will meet
with Interim Athletic Director
Jim Hackett before speaking
with his team at 3 p.m. during a
previously scheduled meeting.
According to Webb, it is
expected that a decision on
Hoke's future at Michigan will
be decided when the coach
meets with Hackett.
ESPN.com later corroborated
Webb's report.
When Hackett spoke with
media before the Wolverines'
game against Maryland on Nov.
22, he said he would conduct
an evaluation of the football
program at the "end of the
season," but declined to offer,
up further details as to when
exactly that evaluation process
would take place.
A Michigan spokesperson
could not confirm to the Daily
the meeting between Hackett
and Hoke.
If Hoke is relieved of his
duties Tuesday, Michigan will
owe him a buyout of $3 million.
If the decision to let him go
comes after Jan. 1, the buyout
drops to $2 million.



Michigan footballcoach BradyHoke will learn his fate ina meeting with Jim Hackett today, per Scout.com's Sam Webb.

The meeting will come
three days after the end of the,
2014 football season in which
the Wolverines went 5'7 in
Hoke's fourth year leading the
program. After winning the
Sugar Bowl and going 11-2 in
Hoke's first season, his teams
have regressed each year.
After Saturday's loss to Ohio
State, Hoke offered few details
about his job status.
"What I know is I'm going
to be the football coach at
Michigan," Hoke said.
"It's what I know right now."
He'll know more tomorrow.
According to reports from
multiple media outlets, redshirt
sophomore running back Drake
Johnson tore his anterior
cruciate ligament after scoring
a touchdown in the third
quarter of Saturday's game.
Johnson missed the 2013 season
