“It is overrated,” Hoke said today, during his weekly radio segment on WXYT-FM (97.1). “You ever watch guys on headsets? They don’t say a word. This gives me an opportunity to coach kids during the course of a game. The game is a mental game. It’s a game of emotion and enthusiasm, a game of teaching. No. 1, not wearing a headset, I get to teach on the sideline, and I get to be a real part of it. The other thing is, I do know what the calls are, because there’s a guy standing right behind me who tells me every call that’s going in.”
Considering the Wolverines are 2-2, with the losses coming from ranked opponents, Hoke might want to make sure he's getting the right info on the field.
