San Diego State AD Jim Sterk wasn’t overly pleased with Michigan AD Dave Brandon and perhaps even Brady Hoke in regards to the handling of the Michigan coaching search.
Sterk said that Hoke didn’t notify him that he met with Michigan until after the meeting occurred, which was either Friday or Saturday.
Brandon, the former Dominos Pizza CEO, never contacted Sterk.
“It’s not good business,” said Sterk.
San Diego State has since named Rocky Long as their new head coach. Long served as the Aztecs’ defensive coordinator the past two years. Sterk said he will not pursue legal action against Michigan. He did say that Hoke's contract states he does have to notify the administration of any interview, which he did only after-the-fact.
While watching the presser, it didn't seem to us that Sterk would pursue legal action against Hoke, although he didn't say he would not.
A reporter asked Sterk at the end of the press conference this afternoon, “Pizza Hut or Dominos?”
Sterk’s responded, “Pizza Hut” with a laugh and smile.
