MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) -Ball State coach Brady Hoke has resigned to accept the same position at San Diego State.
Ball State president Jo Ann Gora said Monday the school wanted to keep Hoke at his alma mater.

``Coach Hoke has had a tremendous amount of success as our head football coach,'' Cardinals athletic director Tom Collins said. ``His offer at San Diego State is a testament to that success. We worked very hard to keep him at Ball State, while also being sensitive to the current economic environment.''
