MONROE, La. (AP) — Louisiana-Monroe head coach Todd Berry says he's hired John Mumford as his new defensive line coach.

Mumford, whose hiring was announced Wednesday, has spent the past 14 seasons at Army, which included a stint as defensive line coach under Berry from 2000-03.

Mumford says he is "privileged and absolutely fired up" to reunite with Berry.

Berry says he wanted a veteran coach to handle what is currently a veteran defensive line, as well as an experienced recruiter.

Before heading to West Point, Mumford was head coach At Southeast Missouri State from 1990-99, and was named Ohio Valley Conference coach of the year in 1994.
