In his second season as offensive coordinator, Steve Addazio has taken a lot of the heat from fans for the Gators’ offensive struggles. But coach Urban Meyer said Monday that right now he anticipates Addazio staying in that position next season.
“I am expecting that to happen,” Meyer said. “I’ll have further updates as we get closer to the bowl game. Like I said, everybody’s out recruiting and doing their business.”
Florida ranks 79th in total offense. The best team in the country in pass efficiency a year ago, the Gators are 85th this season. And only four teams in the country rank lower than the Gators in red zone offense – Wyoming, Florida Atlantic, Washington State and Buffalo.
Meyer said he’s still in the evaluation process, but the Gators will have at least one position to fill with defensive line coach Dan McCarney’s departure for North Texas. GA Tony Weaver is filling in in the interim.
