While Will Muschamp has already “lost” his offensive coordinator this offseason, it doesn’t appear that will be the case on the defensive side of the ball.
In recent days, there has been speculation bubbling just below the surface that defensive coordinator Dan Quinn was possibly leaving Florida for a job with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Gainesville Sun, however, reported Monday that Quinn has turned down the opportunity with the Bucs and will instead remain with the Gators.
The Sun reports that Quinn had interviewed with Greg Schiano for the coordinator job in Tampa.
In Quinn’s first season at UF last year, the Gators finished eight in total defense and 20th in scoring defense.
