Brady Hoke wants to clear something up. 

The former Michigan coach’s name has been making the rounds over the last 24 hours for something not-so-flattering. According to Wolverines’ running back De’veon Smith, Hoke fell asleep on the player’s couch when he came over the then-prospect’s house for a recruiting visit. 

That’s not true, though, Hoke says. 

Hoke probably didn’t literally fall asleep on Smith’s couch, but if a college coach were going to actually pass out on a sofa during a recruiting visit, it’d be Hoke, right?
