Brady Hoke's dad: You're going to get butt kicked at Michigan

June 13, 2014

Father's Day offers everyone, around sports and outside of them, the chance to reflect and recall memories that hold families together.

Michigan coach Brady Hoke did that recently.

Hoke's father, John, passed away in 2012 from lung cancer but not before he had the chance to watch his son win a Sugar Bowl with the Wolverines.

The memory brought back a funny annual tradition he kept with his father that included John attending the first spring practice of each new year and offering a blunt assessment of Brady's football team.

Here's the anecdote, courtesy of the Detroit News:

Happy Father's Day to all.
