CFB: Michigan QB Denard Robinson is staying at school

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - 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.

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, who was chosen Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year, came to Michigan because of Rodriguez's spread offense.

He finished sixth in voting for the Heisman Trophy and won awards as the Big Ten's offensive player of the year and MVP.
