Coaching staff update: Florida

Here's a quick look at where the Florida coaching staff stands as of Monday, Jan. 22.

But first, a quick glance at how the Gators finished in 2017.

2017 Result
4-7 overall (3-5 in the SEC).


2017 Coaching Staff
Head coach: Jim McElwain
Offensive coordinator/quarterbacks: Doug Nussmeier
Defensive coordinator: Randy Shannon
Defensive line: Chris Rumph
Cornerbacks: Corey Bell
Wide receivers: Kerry Dixon II
Special teams / tight ends: Greg Nord
Offensive line: Brad Davis
Linebackers: Tim Skipper
Running backs: JaJuan Seider

2017 Key Off-the-Field Staff
Head strength coach: Mike Kent
DFO: George Wynn
Director of Player Personnel: Drew Hughes


2018 Changes
Full change here. Dan Mullen brought much of the band from Starkville with six of his ten full-time assistants and all of his key off the field hires coming from Mississippi State. Add in that he also brought former quarterbacks coach Brian Johnson (who was OC at Houston) in...and yeah, this is #HailState2.0.

Mullen brought in Sal Sunseri to coach defensive line and hired Charlton Warren who was not retained at Tennessee, and that's the staff.

Tenth Assistant
Given that it is a completely new staff, it truly isn't fair to peg any of them as the 10th hire here; but we'll place JaJuan Seider here as there are some rumblings in the profession that Seider is a bit unhappy with being moved to tight ends. He reportedly (and per our sources) has interviewed for a few other positions. Perhaps this spot opens as some point.
