Gators bring back former UF coach as special teams coordinator

Coleman Hutzler

Still in need of a new offensive coordinator, Will Muschamp has in the meantime filled another hole on his Florida coaching staff.

The Gators announced Wednesday that Muschamp has hired Coleman Hutzler to be his special teams coordinator.  Hutzler has spent the past two seasons at New Mexico State as special teams coordinator/linebackers coach.

It’s a reunion of sorts for all involved as Hutzler was an assistant at Florida in 2010 (Urban Meyer’s last season) and 2011 (Muschamp’s first).

“Coleman is a young coach with a very bright future,” said Muschamp in a statement. “He has a great work ethic and obviously is very familiar with our special teams’ schemes. It will be a seamless transition for our players.”

Hutzler will replace Jeff Choate, who the school said “resigned to pursue other coaching opportunities.”

    Choate resigned to go to Washington with Petersen. Not exactly a ringing endorsement of Muschamps long term prospects. All things being equal coaches don’t usually leave jobs like Florida for lateral moves.
