Steeler Nation, it looks like former Steeler nose tackle Chris Hoke is heading back to training camp. Chris Hoke announced on Craig Wolfley’s latest podcast that he will be doing a coaching internship with the Steelers this summer at training camp St. Vincent College Latrobe Pa. . Hoke will be assisting defensive line coach John Mitchell with the defensive lineman.
During the podcast Hoke said that he would be working with the young defensive lineman trying to teach them the tricks of the trade he has gathered in his 11 years NFL experience while playing defensive line for the Steelers.
Hoke was known for his great football smarts as a player. He looked for every edge and was an avid student of game film. Hokes great work ethic and knowledge of the game should bode well for him and the Steelers during his internship in coaching.
The young defensive linemen would be very wise to take full advantage of this experience, taking in and applying any knowledge Hoke offers. If you get a chance listen to the Craig Wolfley podcast in its entirety it’s very informative and entertaining as usual. Wolf ,Hoke and Bradley offer a lot of good insight on life as a player and a coach. Here is a link to Craig Wolfley’s podcast .
