Former Michigan Wolverines head coach Brady Hoke has officially landed a new head coaching job. It’s at a place he’s familiar with.
Hoke has been named the next head coach at San Diego State. This will be his second stint at the school.
The longtime college football coach was at SDSU from 2009-10 before taking the Michigan job. He returns a decade later following Rocky Long’s decision to step down.
San Diego State announced the hire today.
“Brady Hoke, who led San Diego State to its first bowl game in 12 seasons in his first stint on The Mesa from 2009-10, has been named the program’s new head coach,” the school announced.
