Meyer Hires New Defensive Coordinator
Teryl Austin has been named Defensive Coordinator of the University of Florida football program, the athletic department announced Friday. Austin comes to the Gators with 19 years of coaching experience, including 12 at the collegiate level and the past seven as an NFL defensive backs coach with the Arizona Cardinals (2007-09) and Seattle Seahawks (2003-06). Austin helped lead both Seattle and Arizona into the Super Bowl as NFC Champions.
Austin previously coached alongside Florida offensive coordinator Steve
Addazio at Syracuse and Gator quarterbacks coach Scot Loeffler at Michigan.
