CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Charlotte has hired former Michigan assistant Bruce Tall as the program's first defensive coordinator.
Tall on Thursday became the third member of coach Brad Lambert's staff, joining offensive coordinator Jeff Mullen and defensive coach James Adams. The 49ers will recruit a redshirt class that will enter school in the fall of 2012 before beginning play a year later.
Tall spent the past three seasons as Michigan's defensive line coach and served as safeties coach at West Virginia for five years before that. Tall has also worked Cornell, Northeastern and his alma mater, Ohio Wesleyan.
