If you've been paying any attention at all to the Florida Gators football program the past five years under Urban Meyer -- and now a month into the Will Muschamp era -- you will have found one common trait amongst each of their coaching staffs: a relationship to the University of Notre Dame.
FACT: Each of the last six (including current) Florida Gator football coaching staffs have spent more years; attending, coaching or playing football at Notre Dame -- than Brian Kelly's current staff.
Think about that...
Meyer, a former Notre Dame assistant coach under Lou Holtz -- hired a number of coaches who had ties to the University of Notre Dame football program during his five years at Florida:
- Steve Addazzio -- Offensive Coordinator, was on Bob Davie's staff at Notre Dame
- Greg Mattison -- Co-Defensive Coordinator, was on Davie's and Willingham's staff at Notre Dame
- Charlie Strong -- Defensive Coordinator, was on Lou Holtz and Bob Davie's staff at Notre Dame
- Chuck Heater -- Co-Defensive Coordinator, was on Lou Holtz's staff at Notre Dame
- Anthony Weaver -- Grad Assistant, former Notre Dame starting defensive end
- Charlie Weis '78 -- Offensive Coordinator -- ND alum and former Head Coach of the Irish
- Bryant Young '94 -- Defensive Line Coach -- ND alum, former Irish All-American and Grad Assistant on Charlie Weis' staff at Notre Dame
Don't they say; "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery."
