Favorite Bo stories from Hoke, Fred Jackson 

November, 17, 2011
As part of our package of stories reflecting on the life and legacy of former Michigan coach Bo Schembechler, two of the Wolverines current coaches who knew him took time to tell their favorite Bo stories.

Michigan head coach Brady Hoke: “When I got hired here [as an assistant coach], he didn’t come back until we started spring football, and I can remember just talking football with him. He always wanted to know how your guys were doing, how they were playing and what you thought and then he would always give his two cents, which was more like a million dollars when you got something back from Bo as far as a critique. How he treated the kids when he was here, and he was so iconic.

“His former players, they had a significant reunion of Bo’s Boys and the 20-year period he coached, I think in 1999, they had a thing here on campus. It told you an awful lot when you saw how many guys came back and what kind of man he was and a leader and mentor and teacher and father.”
