KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Two weeks after taking the job, Tennessee coach Derek Dooley announced he is hiring Boise State's Justin Wilcox to be his defensive coordinator.

The 33-year-old Wilcox has spent the last four seasons at Boise State, leading the Western Athletic Conference in total defense and scoring defense each year. The Broncos were 14th nationally in total defense last season, as they went 14-0 and beat TCU in the Fiesta Bowl.

Wilcox played defensive back for Oregon from 1995-99 and has also worked as an assistant at California. He said the Tennessee job was "too good to pass up."

Wilcox will succeed longtime NFL coordinator Monte Kiffin.
