Hoke: Complacency is dangerous

Brady Hoke met with the media to talk about spring practices yesterday and was asked about how his coaching philosophy with the interior defensive line may change after graduating some veterans.

Hoke explained that he had changed his coaching philosophy briefly as an assistant in 1998, coming off of a national championship with three returning starters, and complacency set in.

"I didn't do a good job as a coach sticking with the basics in a progression that you want, and an expectation that you need to have, and I have promised myself since then that I wouldn't do it again."

Hoke said his biggest regret was that he didn't coach them hard enough the following year, and their loss to Syracuse opened his eyes to the complacency.
