Former NFL assistant coach Charlie Coiner was hired as an assistant defensive coach, the University said in a press release on Wednesday.
Coiner has worked with tight ends with the Buffalo Bills for the last four seasons.
UNC football spokesman Kevin Best said Coiner will work with the defensive line but has not replaced former associate coach John Blake.
Blake, who was the defensive line coach as well as recruiting coordinator, stepped down last week amid speculation of his involvement in the NCAA investigation.
At UNC, Coiner reunites with fellow coaches John Shoop and Everett Withers, with whom he worked at the Chicago Bears and Austin Peay University, respectively.
