Former Michigan head football coach Brady Hoke is expected to be announced as San Diego State's new defensive line coach, perhaps as soon as Wednesday, returning to the school he left eight years ago when he was hired as head coach in Ann Arbor.
Hoke was back on SDSU's campus Monday, meeting with players and reacquainting himself with the program he guided during the 2009-10 seasons. He replaces Ernie Lawson, who was not retained following three seasons as SDSU's defensive line coach.
Hoke was fired as defensive line coach of the Carolina Panthers this past season. He worked in 2016 as Oregon's defensive coordinator after leading Michigan from 2011-14. After getting let go from the Ducks staff, he joined Tennessee as defensive line coach and became the interim head coach once Butch Jones was fired.
