Florida Gators add Charlton Warren to staff

Dan Mullen’s inaugural staff at Florida continues to take shape.

Charlton Warren will join the Florida Gators coaching staff after he spent one year at the University of Tennessee as defensive backs coach and special teams coordinator.

Warren was a three year letter winner at Air Force where he played defensive back. After fulfilling his active service requirement in the Air Force Warren returned to his alma mater to begin his coaching career. He spent nine seasons at Air Force, three as secondary coach/recruiting coordinator, three as co-defensive coordinator/secondary coach/recruiting coordinator and three as associate head coach/defensive coordinator.

In 2011, the Air Force pass defense ranked third in NCAA passing yards allowed at 166.8 yards per game and was second in 2010 by allowing 147.8 yards per game.

In 2014 Warren moved on to Nebraska to coach the secondary. He moved again to North Carolina in 2015-16. He coached secondary at both stops. In 2017 Warren was hired to coach the secondary at Tennessee. The Volunteers’ pas defense was one of the stingiest in the SEC, allowing the second-fewest passing yards (1,950) and yards per game (161.7). The Volunteers pass efficiency defense (127.8) was good enough for seventh in the league.

Nick de la Torre
A South Florida native, Nick developed a passion for all things sports at a very young age. His love for baseball was solidified when he saw Al Leiter’s no-hitter for the Marlins live in May of 1996. He was able to play baseball in college but quickly realized there isn’t much of a market for short, slow outfielders that hit around the Mendoza line. Wanting to continue with sports in some capacity he studied journalism at the University of Central Florida. Nick got his first start in the business as an intern for a website covering all things related to the NFL draft before spending two seasons covering the Florida football team at Bleacher Report. That job led him to GatorCountry. When he isn’t covering Gator sports, Nick enjoys hitting way too many shots on the golf course, attempting to keep up with his favorite t.v. shows and watching the Heat, Dolphins and Marlins.
