The interim era of Athletic Director Jim Hackett is in full swing now, and at least a temporary bandaid was applied to one of the several gashes this program has endured though the last few seasons. University of Michigan President Mark Schlissel was very blunt in saying Hackett is the athletic director and carries all of the regular duties, which includes the evaluations of coaches. There is obviously a great deal of talk about Brady Hoke and what his future holds, but should it come down to it, Hackett will be the one to make that call and then hire the next head coach.
This is troubling for some because Hackett is merely an interim athletic director, and the feeling is that those major changes should be left for the permanent athletic director, whenever he/she is hired.
What do you think?
