Ex-QB Leak To Help On The Defensive Side Of The Ball At Florida

gfx - they said itEarlier 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.

Turns out he’ll be doing that job on the defensive side of the ball, according to Muschamp:

 

“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.
