Report: Brady Hoke In Play For East Carolina, Tulane Coaching Positions


Brady Hoke is on East Carolina and ECU’s coaching lists.


Brady Hoke has been out of the head coaching ranks for the past year, but apparently he’s ready to hop back in the saddle.

According to ESPN’s Brett McMurphy, Hoke is in play for a couple of the open head coaching positions.

“Brady Hoke emerges as one of “leading candidates” at ECU, will interview for 2nd time Saturday, source told ESPN. Also interviewed w/Tulane,” McMurphy tweeted.

Hoke’s last coaching job was an unceremonious stop at the University of Michigan. He spent four years in Ann Arbor, Mich., leading the Wolverines to a 31-20 overall record.

His first season was a rousing success, compiling 11 wins to just two losses, but it was downhill every year after that. His last season was a 5-7 campaign.

Tulane fired Curtis Johnson as its head coach after four subpar years, posting a 15-34 overall record.

ECU is looking for a coach to replace Ruffin McNeill, who led the Pirates to a 42-34 overall record in his six years in Greenville, N.C.


*UPDATE* Tulane has hired Georgia Southern coach Willie Fritz.
