It didn’t take Florida State Seminoles head coach Jimbo Fisher long to find a replacement for Sal Sunseri as the team’s defensive ends coach.
Hours after news broke that Sunseri would take a position as part of Jack Del Rio‘s staff with the Oakland Raiders, Fisher targeted and obtained the latest addition to his staff.
“Warchant.com has confirmed with a source inside the football program that Florida assistant head coach and defensive line coach Brad Lawing has been hired to take over as FSU’s new defensive ends coach,” Gene Williams reported.
The Seminoles might have even upgraded their coaching staff with this hire. Lawing isn’t simply one of the better defensive line coaches in college football. He’s also a top-notch recruiter.
Prior to Lawing’s two-year stint with the Gators, he served as Steve Spurrier‘s defensive line coach from 2006-12.
In his 23 years as a head coach, Lawing has developed 15 NFL defensive linemen. He’ll now get his hands on Florida State’s talent-laden defensive front.
