The Florida Gators surging offseason continued Thursday with the hiring of Larry Scott. Just one day after losing former tight ends coach Ja’Juan Seider.
Scott comes to the Gators from their Rival Tennessee, where he coached tight ends and was an offensive coordinator last season, which was his first time calling plays.

Scott comes back to the state that he has a well-known background in. Scott not only is from the state of Florida, but also played at the University of South Florida, and also coached at USF from 2006-2012. He then headed to Miami from 2013-2015 under Al Golden and was later the interim head coach at the end of 2015.
We previously discussed how the Gators were quietly doing a great job with recruiting this offseason, and now they have also put together a talented staff. Eight of Florida’s 10 assistant coaches have prior experience as an offensive or defensive coordinator/co-coordinator, and every coach on staff has prior SEC experience.
Dan Mullen came in with a plan since his December hire, and so far, has seemed to execute on almost everything he has set his sights on. However, everyone knows that headlines can be won in January, but that doesn’t necessarily translate to wins on the field.
Time will tell if Mullen and company can get the Gators back to national prominence, but for now ,they look to be on the right track.
