Urban Meyer named offensive line coach Steve Addazio as Florida's new offensive coordinator today, filling the void left when Dan Mullen accepted the head coaching position at Mississippi State.
A few weeks ago, when Mullen first accepted the Mississippi State job, we gave a list of a few people we would've liked to see fill his shoes. Noticeably missing from that list: Addazio.
We figured the best bet was for Meyer to keep the job in-house, and we thought wide receivers coach Billy Gonzales would've been a good fit. Addazio, however, also seems to be a great pick to takeover for Mullen (who will call plays in the BCS National Championship).
Any number of coaches on the offensive staff at Florida would've been great choices, seeing as how they all have a say in scripting plays and organizing the offense.
We wish Addazio the best of luck taking over for Mullen, and hope he has as much success at the position as Meyer's past offensive coordinators have had (three of them have gone on to get head coaching positions).
