Before that, he pitched in the Cincinnati Reds minor league system from 1989-1993. The Reds traded him to the Giants on March 31, 1994, just as the season was about to begin. He completed his playing career in 1998 in the minor leagues. Overall, Hook appeared in 55 major league games from 1995-1996, all in relief.

In 2019, after almost two decades of working as a pitching coach in college, independent ball, and in the minor leagues, he was named pitching coach of the Milwaukee Brewers. Hook remained in this role through the 2023 season.
