Brady Hoke Through 33 Games

Facebook Twitter Email

The First 33

With the 63-47 victory over Indiana, Brady Hoke has now coached 33 games for Michigan, with a record of 25-8.

33 Games W Ind

Arguments can be made all day that Brady Hoke should win more (or won less) but hasn’t because of strength of schedule, talent inherited on the roster, coaching of that talent, ability to recruit and develop young talent, coulda/woulda/shoulda had another win/loss if it weren’t for a crazy play or bounce of the ball, desire to wear a headset, and so forth. The bottom line is that the same arguments could be made for most if not all of the head coaches in Michigan history who have coached at least 33 games.

National Championship Comparison

Nat Champ First 33 W Ind

Hoke is holding his own in comparison to BCS-era National Championship Coaches. In Hoke’s first 33 games, he has the same number of victories at the same juncture as Nick Saban at Alabama; he has more through 33 games than Saban at LSU; Mack Brown at Texas; Pete Carroll at USC; and Bobby Bowden at Florida State.

Summary

Avg Graph 33 Games W INd

Brady Hoke Wins in first 33 games: 25

  • Michigan Head Coach average is 24.3; Median is 25.5.
  • National Champ Head Coach average is 25.9; Median is 26.0.
