Al Borges: I'm on the Brady Hoke page

As Michigan’s new offensive coordinator / quarterbacks coach, Al Borges says, “I’m on the Brady Hoke page.”

Borges, who led the Auburn offense during their undefeated season in 2004, couldn’t wait to follow Brady Hoke from San Diego State to Michigan.

Borges says, “It doesn’t get much better than this. This place is the best. To be here is a little surreal.”

“I’m on the Brady Hoke page. Toughness is critical. There are a lot of people coming off the ball. You start with toughness and great effort. Offensively, there has to be a premium on execution.”

“I was once told a great coach make the kids do what he wants them to do. And that’s what we’re going to do. We’re going to hard coach them, love ‘em up and we’re going to make it hard on them sometimes.”

During his career, Borges has served as the offensive coordinator at Portland State, Boise State, Oregon, UCLA, Cal, Indiana, Auburn, and San Diego State. In his four years at Auburn, the Tigers were 41-9.
