Well, we can finally stop guessing when the search for the next head coach of Michigan football will officially begin. That moment is now, after news broke this afternoon of Brady Hoke’s dismissal from the team.

Hoke managed to lead the maize and blue to 11 wins in his first season in charge in 2011, but won fewer and fewer games every season since (8/7/5). Michigan’s current tally of just five wins this season, coupled with last week’s loss to rival Ohio State, eventually led to Hoke’s termination.

Mr. Harbaugh, Michigan is on line one.
