Meyer Looking At Two Aides From UF

WKMG-TV in Orlando reported before Urban Meyer’s acceptance of the Ohio State job that he would make a run at two Florida staff members once he finally admitted he was taking the job.  The station said strength and conditioning coach Mickey Marotti and linebackers coach DJ Durkin would be at the top of the list.

Today The Columbus Dispatch says Meyer is indeed eyeballing two UF aides, but it lists receivers coach and recruiting coordinator Aubrey Hill as a Meyer target along with Marotti, not Durkin. 

Hill is an interesting choice for Meyer.  Taking over a program that’s currently awaiting NCAA sentencing on two fronts, one might think he would steer clear of anyone with any smudge of trouble on his resume.  But Hill was named in Yahoo! Sports’ report on Miami booster Nevin Shapiro earlier this year.  Florida backed him in full and Shapiro’s allegations could be poppycock, but it’s worth noting just the same.

UF athletic director Jeremy Foley told The Orlando Sentinel’s Mike Bianchi on WYGM-AM 740 earlier this week that he didn’t think Meyer would take any Gator assistants to Columbus.

“I don’t think so.  He and I talked the other day and he didn’t mention that,” Foley said.  “He and I talked the morning before his press conference and I wished him well, but I don’t think that’s gonna happen.”
