Kentucky assistant Andy Buh will become Maryland's defensive coordinator, multiple sources told FOX Sports Monday.

Buh, who has been UK's OLB coach, has been defensive coordinator or co-defensive coordinator at Stanford, Nevada and California. He and Terps head coach D.J. Durkin worked together on Jim Harbaugh's Stanford staff.

Buh replaces Scott Shafer who stepped down Friday for personal reasons.
