Brady Hoke Announcement At Michigan Met With Cheers From Players

With Brady Hoke officially on-board as the head coach at Michigan, the attention turns to how the players will accept him. Hoke's first job is winning over the players still in the program, before moving quickly to secure the incoming recruiting class. Players were assembled in a team meeting on Tuesday, shortly after Michigan announced the hire, to be informed that Hoke would be the new man in charge.

According to Angelique Chengis, players were not only receptive to Hoke, but stood up and cheered when the hire was announced at a team meeting on Wednesday.

Not a bad start for Hoke, who at least brings a little stability after former head coach Rich Rodriguez spent his tenure in Ann Arbor almost constantly sitting on a hot seat. While we don't yet know how the players will take to Hoke, at least they put forth the effort to look like they're excited about the hire. Michigan is a program that needs some kind of excitement right now, after a disappointing end to the 2010 season.

Hoke will be introduced as the Michigan head coach at a press conference on Wednesday at 1 p.m. EST. For more on the Wolverines, check out SB Nation's Maize N Brew.
