FootballScoop.com has gathered a pair of quotes regarding one Florida assistant coach who Will Muschamp retained and one UAB assistant who’s on his way to Georgia.
First, Muschamp himself has opened up about DJ Durkin, the Gators linebackers coach and special teams coordinator who Urban Meyer brought to Gainesville last year:
“I have two guys that I really respect in this profession that both called me and said, if you don’t retain him, I’m going to hire him. That was a good motivating factor…” in keeping Durkin on his staff.
Second, UAB head coach Neil Callaway praised former offensive line coach Will Friend as he heads to Athens to take over for former UGA O-line coach Stacy Searels:
“I know the people that you’re talking about and they’re all good coaches, but I’d put Will Friend up against any offensive line coach in the country. I think he’s that good.”
Here’s guessing Gator and Dawg fans like hearing that kind of talk.
