Brady Hoke Responds To Michigan Running Back's Claim That The Former Coach Fell Asleep During Recruiting Visit

Brady Hoke wants to clear something up. 

The former Michigan coach's name has been making the rounds over the last 24 hours for something not-so-flattering. According to Wolverines' running back De'veon Smith, Hoke fell asleep on the player's couch when he came over the then-prospect's house for a recruiting visit. 

That's not true, though, Hoke says.
