Football: UNT makes official Walters’ hiring

North Texas officially announced Monday the addition of Ryan Walters as its new cornerbacks coach.

Walters was a graduate assistant at Oklahoma last season and spent the previous two seasons with Arizona, including one as the Wildcats defensive backs coach. Walters played at Colorado, where he was an honorable mention All-Big 12 selection as a senior in 2008.

Walters takes over for Justin Gaines, who resigned after last season, and will be one of two new members of UNT’s staff in 2013.

Tommy Perry joined UNT’s staff as its running backs coach and special teams coordinator after spending four seasons on the staff at South Alabama.
