Florida Gators release video features on nine assistant football coaches

With a brand new staff looking to bring Florida Gators football back to respectability, the program rightly thought it would be worthwhile to give fans — and more importantly, recruits — a closer look at what each of its assistants brings to the table.

As such, over the last two months, Florida has been slow-releasing each of these profiles, which cover the coordinators and position coaches under head coach Jim McElwain.

Here are all nine of those videos.

Florida Gators 2015 spring practice: Will Grier leads quarterback battle … by a hair

Head coach Jim McElwain took the field with the Florida Gators for the 12th time on Monday as the 2015 spring practice session kicked off its final stretch. After practice, he met with the media to discuss some goings on with the team over the last four days.

Opening statement

Due to the holiday weekend, McElwain did not hold a media availability on Friday to discuss that day’s practice. He recapped both on Monday.

“I was really happy actually with [Monday’s] practice. Obviously it was our last one without pads and a lot of times the guys focus – as far as what you get out of it – isn’t great. But I thought they really came out and got a lot out of it. We were able to really focus on a lot of our situational stuff, last play of the game, some big things both offensively and defensively as well as in special teams, special situations – long field goal, long return – a lot of the things that you try to do and get accomplished and make sure on your checklist that you handle. … You prepare yourself in many ways as you can off your checklist, so that was good.

“Going back to Friday … I thought the defense really asserted themselves. Offensively, the first drive was good – they went seven plays, overcame a penalty … and went down and scored right away. But other than that, the defense did a much, much better job taking the ball away and handling some three-and-out situations. I think [the defense] definitely took control of the scrimmage.”
