Coach Info:
Position: Defensive-Line
Shane Burnham joined the UCF Football coaching staff in December of 2017. He came to Orlando from Rutgers, where he was the defensive line coach for the two seasons. In his first season with Rutgers, the Scarlet Knights' defense showed a seven-sack improvement over the previous season.

Burnham spent seven seasons at Iowa State prior to his stint at Rutgers. Six of his seasons with the Cyclones were spent coaching defensive tackles, while he worked with the inside linebackers for one year. He added oversight of special teams in 2012. His punt return unit ranked No. 3 in the nation in 2015. ISU returned a pair of kickoffs for touchdowns in 2013, the first time they returned a kickoff for a score since 2004 and the first time they tallied two in a season since 1994. ISU also ranked in the Top 20 nationally in kick and punt return defense in 2012.

During his time working with the defensive tackles at ISU, his unit improved dramatically, helping to lead the Cyclones to three bowl appearances.

Burnham coached at Elon from 2005-08, serving as linebackers/defensive ends coach and special teams coordinator. The Phoenix finished No. 19 in the 2008 FCS final rankings, while ranking No. 29 in the nation in total defense and No. 30 in scoring defense. Burnham coached the SoCon Defensive Player of the Year at Elon. As special teams coordinator, Burnham's punt return unit ranked No. 17 in 2007. Burnham also has coaching experience at The Citadel and Richmond.

A 1998 graduate of South Carolina, Burnham was a four-year letterwinner with the Gamecocks and a two-year starter. He was named the team's most outstanding inside linebacker after his junior and senior years. He was a three-time Academic All-SEC honoree and won the Gamecocks' team leadership award.
