Will Muschamp says Charlie Weis isn't only staffer to be offered other opportunities



Florida coach Will Muschamp said Thursday that several of his staffers have fielded other job offers, but so far only three have decided to move on.

Florida strength and conditioning coach Mickey Marotti and director of football administration Mark Pantoni have both left the staff to join former Florida coach Urban Meyer at Ohio State.

And on Thursday, offensive coordinator Charlie Weis resigned to take the head coaching job at Kansas. He is expected to be announced at a press conference today.

Ther have been reports out of Ohio that Meyer was interested in talking with UF recruiting coordinator/WR coach Aubrey Hill, but Muschamp said he doesn't expect any more staff changes.

"I’ve been contacted by numerous schools about our staff, which is a huge compliment to the staff we have,'' Muschamp said. "We have an outstanding staff, but at the end of the day we have guys and we want continuity with our staff. If guys get a promotion and guys get a step up, I think that’s great and I support it. It says a lot about the guys you hire, that they do a good job and they’re good football coaches and they’re good men and they’re good recruiters. But again, I’m very pleased with the continuity of our staff and I don’t anticipate any changes moving forward.”
