ANN ARBOR, Mich. -

However, coach Brady Hoke said Tuesday that Hagerup will sit for the entire 2013 season. He will be eligible to play as a fifth-year senior in 2014.

Hoke says he has been pleased with Hagerup's progress so far, adding he must continue to move forward. Matt Wile will likely punt in place of Hagerup this year.

Hagerup was suspended Dec. 16 for violating unspecified team rules.

He was voted All-Big Ten punter by the media last season as a junior.

The Milwaukee native says the past five months have been an incredible, humbling time for him.
