On Friday morning, Florida Gators head coach Will Muschamp announced that wide receivers coach, Aubrey Hill, has left the school's coaching staff for personal reasons.

Via GatorZone.com:

"Aubrey informed me he was resigning for personal reasons that have nothing to do with the University of Florida,'' Muschamp said. "Aubrey didn't want to be a distraction to our team and our football program and he thought it was best for him to move on."

Hill played wide receiver for the Gators from 1991 to 1994 before joining UF's coaching staff as a graduate assistant in 1996. After that, Hill served as wide receivers coach for four different schools before returning to the Gators to coach the team's receivers.

Muschamp said Hill's duties as receivers coach will be handled by offensive coordinator Brent Pease and graduate assistant Bush Hamdan.

"I have too much love and respect for this program to become a distraction as I deal with some personal issues,'' Hill said in a prepared statement. "I'm thankful for the opportunity to have worked with Coach Muschamp, a tremendous staff and great group of players. The future is very bright here and the University of Florida will always have a special place in my heart. Go Gators."
