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.
``Unfortunately, the recognition that comes with such success made coach Hoke highly attractive to other programs,'' Gora said in a release. ``None of us wanted to see him go.''
Ball State went 12-1 this season, with its only loss against Buffalo in the Mid-American Conference championship. Hoke went 34-38 in six years at the school, but drew national attention when his team went unbeaten into December.
It is uncertain if Hoke will coach Ball State in the GMAC bowl on Jan. 6.

``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.''
