Charlie Coiner has been hired as the defensive line coach at UNC, replacing in that position John Blake who resigned last week as associate head coach.

The university announced the appointment on Wednesday.

“We’re excited to add someone with Charlie’s experience and knowledge of the game to our staff,” UNC head coach Butch Davis said. “… It’s unrealistic to expect in a short two-or-three day period of time that we’ll see the effects of what he’ll be able to do, but he’s been an assistant special teams coordinator in the National Football League. He’s a good football coach. He’s smart, he’s bright, he’s got good communication skills, he’s a good teacher (and) he’s got a unique perspective in that he has seen an awful lot of very good football players and how they play.”

Joiner had recently been tight ends coach with the Buffalo Bills, where he also assisted on special teams.

The Catawba alumnus began his career as a graduate assistant at Appalachian State, later coaching at Austin Peay, Minnesota, Vanderbilt, Texas Southern, Louisville, Tennessee-Chattanooga, and LSU before a four-year stint with the Chicago Bears.
