“Decisions like this are never easy,” Hoke said. “I have a great amount of respect for Al as a football coach, and more importantly, as a person. I appreciate everything he has done for Michigan Football for the last three seasons.”
Borges had been with the team as offensive coordinator since Hoke’s hiring in 2011. After a 15-11 record the last two seasons, including an offense that sputtered towards the latter part of 2013, a change had to be made.
After a period of silence following the embarassing Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl loss, it appeared as if the staff would remain in tact for 2014, which I wrote was an awful move for the problem a few days ago. It appears as if some accountability is finally taking place with this staff.
According to CoachingSeach.com, Michigan has already reportedly reached out to UCLA offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Noel Mazzone as a potential candidate to replace Borges.
