Hoke Tells Team He's Done

According to multiple sources at today's quickly called team meeting, Coach Hoke confirmed what everyone already thought... that he has accepted the position at San Diego State University. Sources at the meeting said Hoke was very straightforward in the brief meeting with the standard "best for me and my family" sort of sentiment. Hoke is leaving his alma mater, the program that he built from the ground up, and a 12-1 record this season to take over a 2-10 steaming turd in the Mountain West Conference. A strange move, for sure, but one that comes down to money, the leadership above him, and the commitment from the institution to build a winning program.

It's a sad day for Cardinal nation, and I'll have some more on this in a bit, but for now, it's a sense of thanks for the job he did, but a general quizzical look in his direction for the move.
