Florida’s new OC Kurt Roper takes over the reigns of an underachieving offense

NEW: Follow on facebook -

The waiting game is over for the Florida Gators.

Duke OC Kurt Roper takes over the reigns of one of the most underachieving offenses in college football at Florida, and Roper will be under the microscope and under much pressure, as this will be the most defining year of Will Muschamp’s coaching career.

Roper was a finalist for the Frank Broyles Award given annually to the nation’s top assistant coach, and his Duke QBs combined for over 3,000 yards and 500 yards rushing in 13 games in 2013.

Roper has been mentored by one of the game’s best QB minds in David Cutcliffe, and he’ll have his work cut out for him mentoring Jeff Driskel.

After all, the last time Florida hired a coach from Duke (Steve Spurrier), it worked out all right.

  1. I hope this works out. It is quite simply the most important decision of Will Muschamp’s coaching career.

  2. What a joke…this guy put up a whopping “7″ points against FSU and now he’s Florida’s OC. LOL!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Doesn’t matter, Muschamp is still there.
