Earlier this week, Will Muschamp announced that former BCS championship-winning quarterback Chris Leak was coming home to his alma mater. Leak — who’s kicked around the NFL, CFL and arena league since departing Gainesville — would join the Gator staff as a quality control coach.
“He decided to branch out a little bit as a football coach, which I think is really smart. We had an opening on the defensive side of the ball for a control coach and he’s going to work with our secondary. I told him I’m still young but I wish I had worked on the other side of the ball. I think that helps you as a football coach aas you continue to develop. I think that will be really beneficial.”
Leak’s duties will mainly include tape breakdowns. He will not be an on-field coach. Quality control jobs are a means for young coaches to get their feet in doors.
