ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN (Indiana's NewsCenter) – Michigan announced on Tuesday the hiring of Brady Hoke as the school's 19th coach in the 131-year history of Michigan football.

Hoke arrives in Ann Arbor after spending the past eight seasons as a head coach at Ball State (2003-08) and San Diego State (2009-10).

Hoke spent eight seasons as the Wolverines defensive line coach prior to starting his head coaching career.

Hoke was named the 2010 Mountain West Conference Coach of the Year after guiding San Diegothe Aztecs to a 9-4 overall record and its first bowl game in 12 years, a 35-14 victory over Navy in the Poinsettia Bowl.

Hoke took the leadership position at his alma mater, Ball State, in 2003 and built it into a championship program before departing after six seasons for the West Coast, with his final team in 2008 completing an undefeated Mid-American Conference regular season campaign.
