Brady Hoke: When Michigan’s new football coach, Brady Hoke, held his first official press conference on Wednesday, January 12, 2011, and fans of the Maize & Blue rallied around this “New Michigan Man” from Dayton, OH. That’s the region of the state known as “the cradle of coaches.” Bo Schembechler came from the town of Barberton, OH and segued to U of M from Miami of Ohio in Oxford. Dayton is right between those two towns!
A new custom DVD has been compiled which, not only features this amazing press conference, but every single television news report from both before and after! The reports are from WJBK-TV Fox 2, WDIV-TV Local 4 and WXYZ-TV Channel 7 (all Detroit). Prior to the press conference there are 28 minutes of reports. After the PC, there were 64 minutes of coverage and the main event, featuring both Brady Hoke and Athletic Director Dave Brandon with both Local 4 and Big Ten Network analysis runs about 90 minutes. This is a real collectible for any Michigan Football fan, especially if you live in other parts of the country where this story didn’t warrant as much attention.
