Florida has hired Tim Davis to replace their offensive line coach Frank Verducci who is out after one season. Davis has 25 years of experience, including serving as offensive line coach at his alma mater, Utah, last season. Before that, he spent two years as Minnesota's offensive line coach and worked alongside current Florida tight ends coach Derek Lewis. He also spent a year as director of player personnel under Nick Saban at Alabama (2008) and worked with Florida coach Will Muschamp with the NFL's Miami Dolphins (2005-06). Gator head coach Will Muschamp said in a statement....

"Tim is a perfect fit for our program. He has a history of coaching in a pro-style offense and shares the same program philosophies," "It will be a seamless transition for our players and staff. He worked with Brian White at Wisconsin, Derek Lewis at Minnesota, and Dan Quinn and I worked with him at the Miami Dolphins. He understands the values that we put on the line of scrimmage and he will help us get where we want to be at that position."

After ranking 105th in total offense last season, the Gators will have two new offensive assistants this coming season.
