There's a definitive NFL flavor to Will Muschamp's coaching staff at Florida.
A few hours after officially announcing Charlie Weis as the Gators' offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach on Monday, Muschamp announced veteran NFL assistant Dan Quinn as his defensive coordinator and defensive line coach.
Quinn has been in the NFL for the past 10 seasons, including the past two as the defensive line coach with the Seattle Seahawks.
“Dan and I worked on the Miami Dolphins’ staff together and is one of the best I’ve been around in terms of teaching fundamentals,” Muschamp said. “He understands how defenses will need to be multiple and how to put players in a position to be successful. The Seattle organization has been great in coordinating the hiring of Dan to our staff and we wish them the best of luck in the playoffs.”
