Florida Gators Coaching Changes: Assistant Strength Coach Hints He May Leave Program

The Florida Gators might soon have another coaching vacancy to fill, as assistant strength coach Scott Holsopple strongly suggested Wednesday morning he would leave the team. "I want to thank all the football players at Florida," Holsopple wrote on his Twitter account. "You are the guys I cared about, loved and went to battle with."

Associated Press scribe Mark Long believes the Tweet indicates Holsopple's days as a Gator have ended.

According to the school's website, Holsopple came aboard as Florida's Assistant Director of Strength and Conditioning in May 2007. During his collegiate boxing career, he earned All-America honors. He holds a degree in kinesiology from Penn State.

Prior to joining the Gators, Holsopple spent five seasons with the Marquette Golden Eagles, followed by one season with the Kentucky Wildcats. At Marquette, Holsopple oversaw "all 14 of the Golden Eagles' Division I athletic programs" as the university's Head Strength-and-Conditioning Coach.
