The Arizona Wildcats are expected to name Brian Knorr as their special-teams coach.

Knorr spent last season as a quality-control coach at Ohio State. He has more than 25 years of college coaching experience, including four seasons as the head coach at Ohio; five seasons as the defensive coordinator at Indiana and Wake Forest; and two stints at his alma mater, Air Force, where he played quarterback in the 1980s.

Knorr, 53, coordinated the special teams while serving as head coach at Ohio, and kicking was his area of focus at Ohio State. Field position was a season-long sore spot for Arizona last season.

Knorr would complete the Wildcats' on-field coaching staff, replacing Charlie Ragle, who left last month for Cal. The UA added receivers coach Theron Aych on Feb. 25.

UPDATE: Knorr updated his Twitter bio page to reflect his new post in Tucson.
