New Gators coach Dan Mullen has now officially completed his coaching staff.
Florida announced Thursday morning each of Mullen’s 10 assistant coaches for the 2018 football season.
Here’s a look at the new Gators coaching staff:
Todd Grantham – Defensive Coordinator
Billy Gonzales – Co-Offensive Coordinator, Wide Receivers
John Hevesy – Co-Offensive Coordinator, Offensive Line
Brian Johnson – Quarterbacks
Greg Knox – Running Backs, Special Teams Coordinator
Ja’Juan Seider – Tight Ends
Sal Sunseri – Defensive Line
Christian Robinson – Linebackers
Charlton Warren – Cornerbacks
Ron English – Safeties
Gonzales and Hevesy will serve as co-offensive coordinators, like they did at Mississippi State. Defensive coordinator Todd Grantham also worked with Mullen in Starkville.
Among the most notable changes: Greg Knox, who served as running backs coach at Mississippi State will take over that position at Florida — replacing Ja’Juan Seider. Seider, the only holdover from former coach Jim McElwain’s staff, will be coaching tight ends for the first time in his coaching career. Seider is regarded as one of Florida’s top recruiters, particularly for south Florida prospects. During the early signing period last month, he helped the Gators sign Iverson Clement and Dameon Pierce — two four-star running backs.
English, who was the final addition to the staff, spent last season with Mullen at Mississippi State. He brings 20 years of coaching experience at the FBS level. He is a two-time Broyles Award (top assistant coach) nominee and was named the 2006 National Defensive Coordinator of the Year.
He earned 2011 MAC Coach of the Year honors at Eastern Michigan, where he spent five seasons as head coach (2009-13).
