Jon Hoke hasn't talked to his brother about Michigan job

Speculation the last two days has been that new Michigan coach Brady Hoke will turn to his brother Jon Hoke to be his defensive coordinator.

Jon Hoke, the secondary coach of the Chicago Bears, said they haven’t discussed the possibility. While Jon Hoke said his goal is to coach in the NFL, he didn’t emphatically deny the possibility.

"No discussion, no talk about it," Hoke told the Chicago Tribune. "None.

“We haven't talked about it. I talked to him for one minute when he got the job to congratulate him on what a great opportunity it is."

"We both have different goals and objectives, what we want to do in football. So, that kind of tells you a little bit. I enjoy what I am doing here. I enjoy pro football. Always have. It's always been a goal of mine to coach pro football."

Hoke is in his second season with the Bears after spending seven seasons with the Houston Texans. Prior to that, he was a defensive coordinator at Florida and he made multiple stops in the college ranks.
Will he definitely not consider the Wolverines?

"He's never even asked me, so we've never had that discussion," Hoke said. "He knows that I enjoy coaching pro football."
