Former longtime Auburn AD Jay Jacobs has joined Scott Stricklin’s staff at Florida.

At Florida, Jacobs will serve as executive associate AD. Jacobs will be responsible for communications, marketing, ticketing and GatorVision per the announcement.

“Florida Athletics is fortunate to have someone of Jay’s caliber joining the UAA,” Stricklin said. “His character, vision, experience and ability to connect with people will be tremendous assets to our department. Additionally, having served in a leadership role in the SEC, Jay understands the great privilege and responsibility we have as a member of this wonderful conference. It’s exciting to have Jay joining the Gators.”

“Some people are fortunate to say they are coming home once in their careers, now I am lucky enough to say it twice,” said Jacobs. “Having attended high school in Jacksonville, I’m honored and privileged to join the UAA and continue to work in the nation’s best conference in the SEC. I am looking forward to working with Scott Stricklin and the rest of the staff to help serve the Gator student-athletes, coaches and fans of the Gator Nation.”
