Re: Adios Rich Rodriguez
Hoke is actually from Dayton originally. He coached for almost 10 years in Michigan and Toledo before going to Oregon for a while. Then he came back to coach at Michigan for 7 years and then Ball State for 6. He may not have as strong ties as Tressel did, but they're stronger than some may think coaching in some capacity in Ohio or Michigan for 20 years.
His brother is the secondary coach for the Chicago Bears. Don't know how much that helps, but it can't hurt.
