Michigan Football News And Notes: Interviews With Brady Hoke, Al Borges, Greg Mattison

Michigan football news has started to slow down a bit as the Brady Hoke era enters its second full week, but fans haven't stopped hunting for tidbits of information. They have simply moved on from the "Which coaches we going to hire?" phase to learning about the new head man and his assistants. To help do just that, below is a rundown of notes that includes, among other things, video interviews with new head coach Brady Hoke, new offensive coordinator Al Borges and new defensive coordinator Greg Mattison (note: in order to not slow down the loading time of this StoryStream too much, the videos aren't embedded).

  • At the conclusion of his first week on the job, MGoBlue interviewed Brady Hoke and covered a variety of topics.
  • MGoBlue talked with Al Borges in a two-part interview that inquired about his offensive philosophies and his early plans for Michigan's new offense.
  • Greg Mattison dished on his decision to leave the Baltimore Ravens and return to Michigan in another interview from MGoBlue.
  • Angelique Chengelis of The Detroit News spoke with Mattison shortly after he was hired (more of the interview can be found here). 
  • PressBox, a Baltimore sports site, got some quotes about Mattison from a few Ravens players.
  • Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon spoke to USA Today about how the Wolverines opened up their checkbook to land Mattison from the NFL.
  • Denard Robinson was interviewed last week about his decision to stay at Michigan.
  • Speaking of Robinson, Desmond Howard got his picture taken with both him and Brady Hoke during a recent visit to Ann Arbor.
  • Scott Draper, who was Michigan's director of football operations for the past 19 seasons, resigned last week in order to accept another position, according to U-M spokesman Dave Ablauf. Draper was one of the people that came off looking poorly from the documents that were revealed about the whole practicegate saga, and my belief is that he should have been let go long before last week.
