Central Florida has hired longtime NFL assistant Paul Ferraro to be defensive coordinator next season.

Ferraro has been defensive coordinator at Maine in the FCS the last two year. He worked with the Panthers, Vikings and Rams from 2005-11, and was an assistant for UCF coach George O'Leary at Georgia Tech from 1995-01.

He replaces Jim Flemming, who left to become head coach at Rhode Island.

Neither Flemming nor Ferraro will coach the 15th-ranked Knights in the Fiesta Bowl against No. 6 Baylor on New Year's Day.
