Denard Robinson Staying With Michigan Wolverines, Brady Hoke Tells Radio Station

The status of QB Denard Robinson has been the most immediate concern related to Michigan’s coaching search post-Rich Rodriguez. New head coach Brady Hoke has told a west Michigan radio station, WBBL 107.3, that Robinson will stay at Michigan.

Thursday morning Hoke said he met with Robinson for about 20 minutes on Wednesday, and that the two would meet again shortly. After that second meeting, it was apparently settled that Robinson would agree to play in the new offense installed by Hoke’s offensive coordinator. Hoke on Robinson:

There’s no question he believes in Michigan, he loves Michigan, and he’ll be a big part of our program. I’ve seen enough of him to know he can be the quarterback of the Wolverines.

The worry for Wolverines fans has been that the team could lose its best player its entire offense if Robinson felt the new offense wouldn’t fit his unique talents. But Hoke has expressed openness in adapting the team’s offense to suit personnel, starting with the program’s most important player.
