Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson talked on camera Sunday for the first time since deciding to stay at Michigan and play for new head coach Brady Hoke.
In an interview with MGoBlue Television, Robinson said, "People were getting in touch with me the whole time, and making sure I made the right decision, not trying to rush things and not trying to force anything.
"My teammates, we talked, and I told them, 'You know I just can't leave you out there.' I've been around these guys two years and we've bonded and it's like a family here. There's nothing like this."
Robinson, who shared his thoughts after the team's 95-minute meeting with Hoke Sunday night, also took to heart advice from his father.
"My dad said if you can play under two different coaches and two different offenses and you can learn and be successful in it, you can do good anywhere."
