First year defensive backs coach Kirk Callahan will not be returning to the Florida Gators staff effective immediately. After just one year on the job, Jim McElwain has decided to move in a different direction at the position. McElwain will meet with his team on Friday to make them aware of the staff change.
“We are making a change on our staff,” McElwain said in a release from the University. “Moving forward Kirk Callahan will be looking at some other opportunities and he has a long career ahead of him.”
Callahan was a graduate assistant at Florida from 2010-11 before being hired by his alma mater, the University of Central Florida. Callahan played defensive back at UCF from 2003-2006 and served as a graduate assistant in 2007, before moving on to North Carolina for two seasons as a graduate assistant as well.
With just three weekends until National Signing Day, the Gators have not decided on a replacement for Callahan.
