A PULSE IN ANN ARBOR! Al Borges Has Been Fired

Posted on Posted in Michigan Football

Offensive coordinator Al Borges will not be retained by the University of Michigan football program in 2014, Brady Hoke and the school announced today in a press release.

“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.
