Michigan head coach Brady Hoke called out the Notre Dame Fighting Irish for “chickening out” of a future permanent series with the Wolverines. Notre Dame is partially joining the ACC in 2015 and the series between the two schools will come to an end at that point. The boisterous Hoke was speaking to fans in Grand Rapids, Michigan over the weekend and voiced his displeasure with the school’s decision.
“We are fortunate to have unbelievable rivalry games at Michigan,” said Hoke. “The Notre Dame game, that rivalry, which they’re chickening out of. They’re still going to play Michigan State, they’re going to play Purdue, but they don’t want to play Michigan. I don’t know how they made that decision.”
Notre Dame decided to keep Purdue and Michigan State on their future schedules. Both the Boilermakers (83 games) and Spartans (75 games) have faced the Irish more times than the Wolverines (39 games).
