Michigan coaches to don CHUCKSTRONG T-shirts


As the Michigan Wolverines prepare to play Illinois on Saturday, the team’s coaching staff will wear CHUCKSTRONG T-shirts purchased from the Colts’ official website.

According to ESPN.com, coach Brady Hoke bought 40 of the T-shirts, which will be worn during the day leading up to the game but not during the game itself.  The staff possibly will wear the shirts during warmups.

Hoke’s defensive coordinator, Greg Mattison, previously served as the Ravens’ defensive coordinator, when Colts coach Chuck Pagano worked as secondary coach.  Mattison’s departure resulted in Pagano’s promotion.  After one year, Pagano was hired to coach the Colts.
