So rumors out there are that Tim Davis has left the U to coach the same position at Florida. It's being reported footballscoop.com who of course famously reported that Crowton had been hired.
Now if this were the case, it would really, really, really suck. While the size of our offensive line last year caused them to be dominated at times, as the season went along the OL drastically improved. Especially considering the amount of injuries, and other depth concerns we had. Personally losing Davis, is a bigger blow to the program than losing Norm Chow was, or even than losing Aaron Roderick might be.
Add into his work on the OL last year, he was supposed to be another ear, and another person for extremely young Offensive Coordinator Brian Johnson to rely on.
I'm hoping this turns out to be wrong, but the timing (the hiring of Finn), would seem to make this legitimate. Also adding to the legitimacy of this rumor is JuCo recruit OL Marc Pouvave tweeting out "Really another coach is gone?!"
