Brady Hoke is returning to the place that landed him the job of Michigan football coach.
San Diego State has hired Hoke to coach its defensive line, the school announced on Wednesday.
Hoke spent two years as the head coach of the Aztecs before leaving for Michigan after the 2010 season, compiling 13-12 record. He will now work under head coach Rocky Long.
Hoke, whose tenure in Ann Arbor ended after the 2014 season, most recently coached the defensive line for the Carolina Panthers in 2018. However, he was fired after just one season.
In his second season at SDSU in 2010, Hoke guided SDSU to a 9-4 record, punctuated by its first bowl game appearance in 12 years and its first postseason victory since 1969 – a convincing 35-14 win over Navy in the SDCCU Poinsettia Bowl.
