Johnny Manziel might be the best quarterback in college football right now, but some could argue that. Michigan head coach Brady Hoke does and thinks otherwise of the Heisman winner.

Hoke appeared on the Dan Patrick Show on Friday morning and was asked a question in which his answer might come to a surprise. When asked which quarterback he would start if Manziel was on the roster, here's what the Michigan coach had to say.

“If Johnny Manziel’s our quarterback, he’d probably be playing behind Devin Gardner. … I’ve got a lot of faith in him,” Hoke said.

You think his answer would have been different if he wasn't the head coach of the Michigan football squad? Probably.
