Michigan QB Denard Robinson Staying At School 1-14-2011

ANN ARBOR, Mich.Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson has decided to stay and play for coach Brady Hoke.
School spokesman Dave Ablauf says Robinson informed Hoke of his decision during a meeting on Thursday.
"I am not surprised," athletic director Dave Brandon wrote in an e-mail. "But nevertheless delighted that Denard has confirmed his decision to stay at the University of Michigan to earn his degree and provide leadership to our football team."
Robinson's high school coach said 10 to 15 schools had called him by Wednesday afternoon, expressing their interest in the dual-threat QB if he chose to transfer.
The first player in NCAA history to throw and run for 1,500 yards hasn't publicly reacted to the firing of Rich Rodriguez last week or the hiring of Hoke.
Robinson came to Michigan because of Rodriguez's spread offense and the Wolverines led Big Ten in total offense this season, though went 3-5 in the league.
Robinson finished sixth in voting for the Heisman Trophy and won awards as the Big Ten's offensive player of the year and MVP.
Brandon said Wednesday that backup quarterback Tate Forcier was no longer with the program after introducing Hoke as the new leader of college football's winningest team. Forcier was academically ineligible to play for the Wolverines in the Gator Bowl.
Messages seeking comment have been left with Forcier.
