Ja’Juan Seider is leaving the Florida Gators, sources have told Gator Country.
Seider spent just one season on staff with the Gators after spending the previous four seasons coaching running backs at West Virginia, his alma mater.
“I’ve always had an affinity for this university and am honored to have the opportunity to join the Florida Gators family,” Seider said at the time he was hired. “I look forward to working with Coach Mac and his staff. I can’t wait to meet the players, spend time with them and help them achieve their goals.”
Seider coached running backs in 2017. He was the only coach retained from Jim McElwain’s staff when Dan Mullen took over but was recently moved to tight ends coach, to make room for Greg Knox. A source told Gator Country that Seider wasn’t happy with the change in roles.
