PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) -- Rutgers has hired Ron Prince and Dave Cohen as offensive and defensive coordinators, respectively.

Coach Kyle Flood made the announcement Tuesday, and filled out the rest of his staff by naming Norries Wilson assistant head coach and Anthony Campanile offensive assistant.

Prince was an assistant offensive line coach last season for the Jacksonville Jaguars, and held the same title with the Indianapolis Colts in 2010 and 2011. From 2006-08, Prince was coach at Kansas State, where he went 17-20 and took the Wildcats to just one bowl.

Cohen was the linebackers coach at Rutgers in 2012, when the Scarlet Knights finished fourth in the nation in scoring defense (14.15 points) and 10th in total defense (311.62 yards allowed/game).

Rutgers went 9-4 last season, Flood's first as coach.
