Tennessee has hired Ike Brown as assistant football strength coach.
Brown, who played at Central Michigan under new coach Butch Jones, has spent the past four seasons playing for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football League.
Brown started his career as a running back at Central Michigan but was moved to safety as a sophomore and then to linebacker as a junior.
He was signed as an undrafted free agent with the Atlanta Falcons in 2008.
Meanwhile, Joe Bernardi, who had been a quality control assistant, has joined Oregon as a graduate assistant.
Bernardi worked with the offensive line for the past two seasons following the completion of his collegiate career as a four-year starting center at Fresno State in 2010.
