CLIFTON, OH (FOX19) - The University of Cincinnati football team added some serious experience to their coaching staff on Wednesday with the addition of Mike Gillhamer, the Bearcats new secondary coach.

Gillhamer has 15 years of experience in the NFL, including the last four seasons where he was the secondary coach for the Indianapolis Colts.

"Mike brings a lot to our staff with his extensive experience at the college and pro levels," Tuberville said. "His beliefs about coaching and teaching fundamentals and technique are right in line with my own. He will be a great addition to our coaching staff and we are excited he's on board with the Bearcats."

Before his time on the Colts' staff, Gillhamer worked as a defensive coach with the University of Illinois, the Carolina Panthers, the University of Louisville, the University of Oregon and the New York Giants among others.

UC will host its annual spring game this Saturday, April 2, at 1 p.m. at the Sheakley Athletics Center.
