We, along with plenty of others, have lamented that Napier needed to get himself an offensive coordinator so that he could focus on the rest of the team.

Florida promoted Russ Callaway to co-offensive coordinator this offseason.

We have lamented that special teams are a disaster and need to have Chris Couch as far removed from the unit as possible.

Florida grabbed highly respected Joe Houston from the New England Patriots.

We have lamented that the team looked weak, and even former players that have since transferred have commented that the strength program was lacking under Mark Hocke.

Florida had Craig Fitzgerald, and while he left his disciple Tyler Miles has taken over the program.

Florida also addressed the offensive line in the transfer portal with two of the top ten offensive tackles that were available and has a revamped defensive coaching staff after 2023 was a disaster.
