Florida Adds USC Offensive Line Coach Mike Summers to Staff

Will Muschamp has made his final hire to round out the new Florida football coaching staff.

Mike Summers was announced as the offensive line coach today, replacing Tim Davis, who was fired at the conclusion of the 2013 season.

Summers comes from USC, where he had served as the offensive line coach and running game coordinator since February 2013. He had previously been hired in January to coach offensive line at Western Kentucky.

Summers brings 34 years of experience to the table at schools such as Northern Illinois, Oregon State, University of the South (Sewanee) and Louisville, but is also familiar with the SEC. He was an offensive line graduate assistant from 1980 to 1984 at Kentucky and Texas A&M and returned to the conference in 2008, acting as the assistant head and offensive line coach at Arkansas. In 2010, he moved to Kentucky, working as the running game coordinator and offensive line coach. He has coached six bowl games. Summers also spent a year in the NFL with the Atlanta Falcons.

In 2013 under Summers, the 10-4 USC Trojans ranked 59th nationally with 172.8 rushing yards per game, while the 4-8 Gators were 87th with 145.8.
