Portland State rehires one-time defensive coordinator

Portland, OR (Sports Network) - Former Portland State assistant coach Jaime Hill has returned to the Big Sky Conference football program as head coach Nigel Burton's new defensive coordinator.

Hill worked at Portland State from 1993-97 as both a secondary coach and then defensive coordinator under former head coach Tim Walsh.

Most recently, Hill was the defensive coordinator and secondary coach at BYU from 2006-10. His coaching career began in 1987 at San Francisco State, his alma mater.

"Jaime is a guy with expertise and has a history of really turning around defenses, so I was really interested in talking to him and bringing him aboard," Burton said. "He has a great understanding of secondary play and really his knowledge base and experience is going to be extremely beneficial for us."

Hill will attempt to turn around a Portland State defense that struggled in 2012, allowing 401 yards of offense and 36 points per game. The Vikings finished with a 3-8 record.

Hill will coach the safeties and Burton will reassume his past duties as the team's cornerbacks coach.
