    He was a great coach but an even better man. Very humble and always put his athletes first.

    He will be missed tremendously and going to Gainesville will never feel the same without him there

    Very sad news. I feel horrible for everyone that knew him and especially for his wife and kids. He was a great person who loved Gator Nation and helping others succeed. He'll be missed terribly.

    Had a moment of silence at the softball game today. You could hear a pin drop it was so quiet. They mentioned his thirty years with UF?

    Other people knew him longer and better than I did so I’ll just say this: I worked with this man briefly 25 years ago and his kindness and character still stand out in my mind.
