He later coached at University of South Dakota, University of North Dakota, Ball State University, University of Wyoming, Indiana State University, and University of Kansas. His most notable NCAA coaching job was as the defensive backs coach for Purdue University from 1997 to 1999, where he was a part of two Alamo Bowl championship teams (1997, 1998)
Burke made the move to the CFL as the defensive backs coach with Calgary Stampeders from 2005 to 2007. He later joined the Montreal Alouettes as defensive coordinator from 2008 to 2010, where he won two Grey Cups. In 2011, he took over as defensive coordinator for the Blue Bombers. After the 2011 season, Burke interviewed for the vacant Hamilton Tiger-Cats head coaching position in 2012, but did not get the position. He returned to the Bombers for the 2012 season and was promoted to interim head coach on August 25 after the firing of Paul LaPolice.
