San Diego State head coach Hoke to retire at end of season

San Diego State head coach Brady Hoke announced Monday that he will retire at the end of the season.

Hoke has spent parts of six seasons with the Aztecs, coaching them first from 2009-10 and again in his current stint since 2020.

“I am proud of what we accomplished at San Diego State,” Hoke stated in a release. “I am grateful to all the great student-athletes I’ve had the chance to work with, molding them into men, husbands, fathers and pillars in the community. I will always cherish my time leading this program. I’d also like to thank the wonderful staff I’ve worked with and wish them the best in the future.”

Hoke has led the Aztecs to a 3-7 record this season.

In his time as head coach at San Diego State, Hoke has taken the Aztecs to 13-straight bowl games, a stretch that is sixth-longest in college football.

“I am very appreciative for the work Brady Hoke has done with our football program at San Diego State both on and off the field,” Atzecs athletics director John Wicker stated in a release. “Brady set the standard in 2009 when he first arrived on The Mesa that we now hold ourselves too. However, it’s more than wins and losses.  Brady created a culture, led our program thru COVID, played two entire seasons in Carson, including a 12-win campaign, and takes seriously the development of young men off the field as well as on.
