Dan Mullen, Florida Sign Major Star

Dan Mullen and Florida may sign a major star this week.

Former Florida defensive coordinator Charlie Strong appears to be coming back to Gainesville.

According to Pat Dooley of the Gainesville Sun, head coach Dan Mullen is looking to bring Strong in as an analyst.

Strong was recently fired after three years at South Florida’s head coach.

Prior to that, he coached at Texas for three years.

Before his time with the Longhorns, Strong led Louisville for four years.

The last time Strong served as a coordinator was in 2009, when was working for Florida.

Strong’s presence should serve as a backup for Mullen in the event his defensive coordinator Todd Grantham leaves for the NFL at some point.

Over the last two seasons Grantham has frequently been mentioned for various pro level coordinator roles – including one with the Cincinnati Bengals.

Most recently, Grantham was a candidate for the Mississippi State head coaching job.

Grantham is owed $1.8 million in each of the next two years.
