Brady Hoke, the former Michigan head coach, has been named as the defensive coordinator for Oregon per Mark Helfrich and the official Oregon site.
He was previously let go at Michigan after compiling a 31-20 overall record and an 18-14 record in the Big-10. His final season he went 5-7.
He has over 20 years of coaching experience and has been given multiple coaching awards, including the Big-10 coach of the year. And he has been excellent at coaching solid defense.
Some were fairly happy about this:
When Brady Hoke started at Michigan they were 110th in the country in total defense (450.8 ypg). In his final year they were 7th (311.3).— Noah Dee (@noahoregon) January 16, 2016
