UCF Jim Fleming

SOUTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. -- Rhode Island's new head football coach is the defensive coordinator from UCF.

Jim Fleming will be formally introduced at a press conference on campus on Monday.

Fleming joined Central Florida in 2011 as linebackers coach and was named defensive coordinator last year. With an 11-1 record overall, the Knights are currently ranked No. 15. They'll play in the Fiesta Bowl against No. 6 Baylor.

Fleming served as the linebackers coach for Kent State in 2010 and Akron's defensive coordinator from 2004 to 2009.

The New York City native replaces Joe Trainer, who was released from the final year of his contract in November. Trainer went 12-44 over five seasons at the helm of URI's football team.
