Hoke, 57, will be interviewed along with USC linebackers coach Peter Sirmon and former USC defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox. The three will interview for the position at Oregon after the Ducks ranked 115th in total defense, which led last year’s defensive coordinator Don Pellum to be demoted.

Hoke is certainly an interesting candidate for this position, as he has plenty of experience as a head coach and is 78-70 in a career that includes stops at Ball State, San Diego State and Michigan. He has ties to the state of Oregon, having served as Oregon State’s defensive line coach from 1989-1994. He was also a candidate for the head coaching vacancy at East Carolina before Duke offensive coordinator Scottie Montgomery was hired instead.
