Hoke Hires Ravens Coordinator Greg Mattison to Run Wolverines Defense

University of Michigan football coach Brady Hoke hired one of the NFL's top defensive coordinators to run the Wolverines defense, naming Greg Mattison to the same position that he previously held in Ann Arbor during the 1995 and 1996 seasons. Mattison served as the defensive line coach for the Wolverines from 1992-96.

"Greg loves Michigan, loves recruiting and is excited about coming back to Ann Arbor and the University of Michigan," said Hoke. "Greg is one of the top defensive coordinators in football, and his defensive units have always prided themselves on stopping the run. He will be a great asset to our program and an excellent addition to our staff."

An experienced, proven defensive coach, Mattison brings to Ann Arbor 12 years of defensive coordinator experience at the collegiate level and two seasons in the NFL. During his time at the collegiate level, he coached 18 future NFL players, including seven student-athletes drafted in the first three rounds and two first-round picks
