There’s a new coach on the University of Florida football staff and he knows something about winning championships. According to Jason Lieser of The Palm Beach Post, Will Muschamp announced today that former Gator quarterback Chris Leak has been added to his staff as a quality control coach.
Leak — with some third- and fourth-down help from a freshman battering ram named Tim Tebow — led Florida to a blowout, upset win over top-ranked Ohio State in the January, 2007 BCS Championship Game.
The Gators’ 2006 title was their second overall and first since Steve Spurrier led his alma mater to the 1996 national crown. UF would go on to win the 2008 national title, as well, giving Urban Meyer two crowns during his brief stay in Gainesville.
After his college career, Leak played in the NFL, CFL, and in the Arena Football League.
