Bears defensive backs coach Jon Hoke said he is not interested in joining his brother Brady Hoke, who was hired as Michigan's head coach this week.

''I'm happy where I'm at and happy doing what I'm doing,'' said Hoke, a former Bears defensive back who joined Lovie Smith's staff in 2009 after seven years with the Houston Texans. ''He knows how much I enjoy coaching pro football. We've never had that discussion. Something I've always wanted to do is coach in the National Football League.''

Jon Hoke, like his younger brother a Ball State graduate, enthusiastically endorsed Michigan's hiring as its football coach.

''They hired the right guy. There's no doubt about it,'' he said. ''I'm extremely proud of him. That's been a goal of his to get that job. And he'll do a great job, because he has great passion for the University of Michigan and the football program.''
