Hogan was born in McLean, Virginia, the son of Jerry and Donna Hogan. He has an older brother, Brian, and an older sister, Kelly. His grandfather played football at Navy, while his uncles played football at Notre Dame. Hogan attended Gonzaga College High School in Washington, D.C. where he played high school football for the Eagles and was a two-time first team All-Washington Catholic Athletic Conference selection. As a senior, he earned D.C. Player of the Year honors and was a 2010 Washington Post First Team All-Met selection. He was also named the 2010 Outstanding High School Player of the Year for private schools by the Fairfax County Football Hall of Fame.
Hogan saw extended play for the first time in his college career on November 3, 2012, when the Stanford Cardinal played the Colorado Buffaloes at Folsom Field. Hogan replaced Josh Nunes after the first two possessions and went 18-for-23 for 183 yards, throwing for two touchdowns and no interceptions, and recorded 48 rushing yards. Following the game, Hogan was named the starting quarterback for the Cardinal, replacing Nunes. After becoming Stanford's starting quarterback, Hogan led the Cardinal to three straight regular-season victories against ranked opponents: #13 Oregon State, #2 Oregon, and #17 UCLA. When #17 UCLA and Stanford met in the 2012 Pac-12 Championship six days after their regular-season meeting, Hogan led the Cardinal to a 27–24 victory, earning Most Valuable Player honors and sending the team to the Rose Bowl for the first time since 1999. At the Rose Bowl, Hogan led the Cardinal to a 20–14 victory against Wisconsin, ending the season with a 5–0 record. Despite limited playing time until late in the season, Hogan's 263 rushing yards were the seventh most by a Stanford quarterback in a season in school history.
Hogan was again named the Cardinal's starter for the 2013 season. In the season opener against San Jose State on September 7, 2013, Hogan threw for 207 yards and two touchdowns. Hogan went on to lead the Cardinal to an 11-2 regular season record, with notable wins over Notre Dame, Oregon, UCLA, and Arizona State in the Pac-12 Championship game. In the 11th game of the season, Hogan threw for a career-best 349 yards and 5 touchdowns (all in the first half, and the most by a Stanford quarterback since 1999) in a 63–13 victory over rival California. These wins helped the Cardinal earn a spot in the 2014 Rose Bowl against Michigan State, where the Spartans won a narrow 24–20 victory after stopping Hogan and the Cardinal offense on a critical 4th down play, late in the fourth quarter. Hogan finished the season with 2,630 passing yards, 20 touchdowns passing, two rushing touchdowns, and 10 interceptions.
Hogan remained the Cardinal's starting quarterback for the beginning of the 2014 season. They finished the regular season with an 8-5 record, with losses to their rivals, Notre Dame, along with four in-conference losses to USC, Arizona State University, Oregon, and Utah. Stanford defeated the Maryland Terrapins 45-21 in the 2014 Foster Farms Bowl. In this game, Hogan completed 14-of-20 passes for 189 yards and two touchdowns, and also ran for 50 yards on seven attempts, earning the game's MVP award. He finished the season with 2,792 passing yards, 19 passing touchdowns, five rushing touchdowns, and eight interceptions.
After an unprecedented loss to Northwestern in their opening game in 2015, the Cardinal rebounded by winning their next eight games and ended the season with a 12-2 record. They were the only team in college football that season to play only Power 5 teams throughout their schedule. During the 8-game winning streak, Hogan threw for 1,676 yards, 16 touchdowns, 5 interceptions, and also scored 3 rushing touchdowns. In a Halloween victory over Washington State, Hogan rushed for 112 yards and two late touchdowns, becoming only the second Stanford quarterback to rush for over 100 yards in a game. After a loss to Oregon, Hogan and the Cardinal won the rest of their regular season games, including a win against #6 Notre Dame, and claimed their third Pac-12 championship in four years. In his final college game, the 2016 Rose Bowl, Hogan helped lead Stanford to 35-0 halftime lead in an easy victory over Iowa. He finished the season with 2,867 passing yards and 27 touchdowns (tied for 3rd in school history), and rushed for 336 yards and 6 touchdowns (tying Jim Plunkett's 47-year-old school record). His 171.0 passing efficiency that season was a school record and fifth in the country, while his total offense of 3,203 yards is fourth all-time at Stanford. His 67.8% completion percentage was 2nd in the Pac-10 and 6th in the country, and his average 8.2 yards per play led the conference and was third in the country. He earned second-team All-Pac-12 honors.
Hogan ended his career with a 65.9% completion percentage, 9,385 passing yards, 75 passing touchdowns, and a school-record 15 rushing touchdowns. His 1,249 rushing yards is the most by a Stanford quarterback, and includes four of the top seven seasons in that category. His combined total offense of 10,634 yards is also a school record, and his career passing efficiency of 154.6 is second only to Andrew Luck, and he holds three of Stanford's top 10 seasons in both categories.

Hogan was signed to the Cleveland Browns' practice squad on September 4, 2016. On October 11, 2016, he was signed to the active roster. On October 23, 2016, versus the Cincinnati Bengals, he made his NFL debut. He initially entered the game being used in several read option packages at quarterback, rushing three times for 37 yards. However, once starting quarterback Cody Kessler suffered an injury in the second quarter, Hogan then played the rest of the game. Hogan finished the game having completed 12-of-24 passes for 100 yards with two interceptions while also rushing seven times for 104 yards and one touchdown. His touchdown was a 28-yard rush, which set a record for the longest touchdown run by a quarterback in Browns history. He was also the second Browns quarterback to rush for over 100 yards in a game, and the first quarterback in franchise history to do so as a rookie. He did not see much action after the Cincinnati game. In the next game, against the New York Jets, he came into the game and completed two passes for four yards in the 31–28 loss. He appeared in two more games over the course of the season but only recorded one rush for one yard against the Baltimore Ravens.
On September 8, 2017, Hogan was named the backup to DeShone Kizer. On September 17 against the Baltimore Ravens, Kizer left the game in the second quarter with a migraine headache. Hogan then entered the game, completing 5 of 11 passes for 118 yards, 1 touchdown, and 1 interception before Kizer returned in the third quarter. On October 1 against the Cincinnati Bengals, Hogan relieved Kizer with over six minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. Hogan completed 5-of-8 passes for 65 yards as the Browns lost by a score of 31–7. During Week 5 against the New York Jets, Hogan relieved the benched Kizer following halftime and completed 16 of 19 passes for 194 yards, 2 touchdowns and 1 interception as the Browns lost by a score of 17–14. On October 11, Hogan was named the Week 6 starter for the Browns at quarterback. In Week 6 against the Houston Texans, he completed 20 of 37 passes for 140 yards, 1 touchdown, and 3 interceptions as the Browns lost by a score of 33–17. He also rushed 5 times for 36 yards. Kizer was then re-named the starter. Hogan was also listed as inactive for the next three games due to a rib injury he sustained in his first start.
