Ann Arbor –- Michigan coach Brady Hoke said he has had no discussions with either university president Mark Schlissel or athletic director Dave Brandon about his future with the program.

The Wolverines are 3-5 overall and 1-3 Big Ten and coming off a loss at in-state rival Michigan State. Hoke is 1-3 against Michigan State and Michigan has now lost six of the last seven meetings with the Spartans.

Brandon has said he evaluates all head coaches at the completion of their seasons.

"Those things will be talked at the end of the season," Hoke said. "Have I talked to anybody about those things? No. I don't worry myself about those things.

"I'm confident in what we're doing, and I know what we're doing for 115 kids. Every day I know that. That's as important as anything to me. I feel bad, and I do get angry, because they work so hard. We've got to get over the hump and execute and have consistency as a team. But the work ethic these guys have put in, I couldn't ask for more."

The Wolverines are teetering on not making a bowl game. Michigan plays Indiana (3-4, 0-3) on Saturday at Michigan Stadium.

Michigan needs six wins to become bowl-eligible.

"We have not talked about making a bowl or not making a bowl," Hoke said. "We have talked about this being homecoming. We have talked about staying together. There's a huge commitment to each other. For us, this is the next game, and we've got to get ready for the next game."
