Gator Bowl 2012: Brian White Takes Over Florida Offense

When Kansas hired former Florida offensive coordinator Charlie Weis as head coach last week, it left the Gators without a leader on the offensive side of the ball. This led Florida head coach Will Muschamp to name running backs coach Brian White as interim offensive coordinator for his team's Gator Bowl matchup against Ohio State on Jan. 2 in Jacksonville.

White made coaching stops at Wisconsin, Syracuse and Washington before joining Florida's staff as a tight ends coach under Urban Meyer  He became a running backs coach when Muschamp assumed control of the program following Meyer's retirement last season.

He's looking forward to implementing a similar offense to Weis for the bowl game according to FOX Sports Florida's Scott Carter.

"Conceptually the offense Coach Weis installed is very consistent with what I've coordinated in the past and believe in very strongly," White said. "I look forward to helping our football team play a big game on Jan. 2."
