ANN ARBOR, Mich. — With the writing seemingly on the wall for weeks, Michigan has finally given Brady Hoke a pink slip.

Reports around 3:00 p.m. said that the embattled fourth-year head football coach was relieved of his duties on Tuesday, three days after the Wolverines ended the 2014 season with a 5-7 record.

Michigan finished under .500 in Big Ten play (3-5) for a second consecutive season – and failed to reach bowl eligibility.

Hoke’s tenure in Ann Arbor started with an 11-2 record and a Sugar Bowl win in 2011 – after arriving at Michigan from Ball State. Wins have decreased every season since – and the Wolverines dropped their next two bowl appearances.

Demands for Hoke’s firing reached a fever pitch following Michigan’s loss to Minnesota this season, after sophomore quarterback Shane Morris was left in – and then reinserted into – a game while displaying symptoms of a concussion.

Hoke ends his tenure with a 31-20 record in four seasons with the Wolverines – 20-18 since his first year in Ann Arbor.
