UCF appears to have added more NFL experience to its coaching staff.

After hiring multiple coaches with NFL experience last month, former standout wide receiver Mike Sims-Walker was added as a defensive quality control specialist, according to a report from the Orlando Sentinel.

Sims-Walker played parts of five seasons in the NFL with the Jacksonville Jaguars and St. Louis Rams, after being drafted in the third round by the Jaguars in 2007.

The Edgewater High School alumnus had 14 career touchdowns — seven each in the 2009 and 2010 seasons.

As a senior, Sims-Walker started 12 games and earned All-Conference USA First Team honors after catching 90 passes for nearly 1,200 yards and seven touchdowns.

As a sophomore, he was a two-way player at UCF and led the team in interceptions, as well as catching nine passes on offense.
