Brady Hoke is out as the Michigan head coach. 

Braden Gall, David Fox, Steven Lassan and Mitch Light debate the Michigan Wolverines head coaching vacancy in an Athlon Sports roundtable.

How good is the Michigan job? Where does it rank nationally? What are the strengths and weaknesses? Is this still an elite job?

How does Michigan compare to Nebraska? How will having an interim AD impact the search?

Who are the "Michigan Men" and are any of them worthy candidates? Who among them would be interested in the job? The guys debate Jim Harbaugh and Les Miles.

Who are the top Mid-Major (Group of 5) head coaches who are viable candidates? Who are the top coordinators: Pat Narduzzi or Tom Herman?

Where do Greg Schiano and Dan Mullen fit into the equation?

And finally, our hosts make predictions for the job. Each panelist makes a bold prediction as to who will be the next head football coach at Michigan.
