Gators promote Steve Addazio to offensive coordinator

GAINESVILLE -- Florida coach Urban Meyer said on Saturday that assistant Steve Addazio has been promoted to offensive coordinator. The position was vacated earlier this month when Dan Mullen left UF for Mississippi State.

Addazio, who coached offensive line this season, could be walking into one of the most challenging positions in the country next season if UF quarterback Tim Tebow turns pro. Mullen, who doubled as the Gators' quarterbacks' coach, will help coach the Gators on Jan. 8 in the national championship game against Oklahoma, according to UF.

"We will still run the same type of offense," Meyer said. "We will continue to put the ball in the hands of our best players, spread the field and try to take advantage of the best match ups. Billy Gonzales, Kenny Carter and John Hevesy will continue to be involved in the offensive game planning and play calling as they have all year."

Gonzales (receivers' coach) has been mentioned as a possible offensive coordinator for Tennessee coach Lane Kiffin.

Good move but would suck to lose Gonzo. Hope he can stick around.

Canes lose to Cal, worst clock management ever. LOL

This Dolphins-Jets game is turning out to be a classic. Hopefully the title game will be just as exciting.


Well, the fourth quarter wasn't as interesting as the rest of the game.


Great Dolphins game, great Canes game, great weekend!

Um...need some help? It's 12/30.

Great Dolphins game, great Canes game, great weekend!
