Not particularly a huge name (a quick Google search yields a bunch of this by Gator fans), but this is someone Urban credited for one of his best recruiting classes. If he can help recruit like he did for the Gators... then this already isn't even fair anymore. We have yet to fill out half our coaching staff, and we are already a recruiting giant with Fickell, Meyer, and Pantoni.

UF fans I know/work with are shitting themselves about losing him.

Who previously held this position?

I'm just guessing but I think this position did not exist under Tressel, and this was something Urban assigned at Florida when he met Pantoni. Fancy title for "Right-hand man" for recruiting purposes.

That's what I was wondering.  It sounds like an NFL job, but I didn't know it existed in CFB.

I never heard of it in college football either. I wonder if this counts as an assistant coaching spot.
