No word yet on who will replace Coley, but his innovative play calling will be missed.
Speaking with MC a little while ago, he says he will interview candidates for the offensive coordinator position from among the current Golden Panthers assistants and also coaches from other programs.
The FIU offense improved from 2006 to 2007 - Coley's first season as O-coordinator. The Golden Panthers scored more points (181 to 115) and had more first downs (165 to 150). FIU more than doubled its rushing output under Coley going from 682 yards in 2006 to 1,429 yards last season.
FIU also averaged more yards in total offense in 2007 compiling 269.7 yards to 233.1 in 2006.
