Report: Key Florida assistant leaving Gators for the NFL
Florida quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator Brian Johnson is leaving for an NFL job with the Philadelphia Eagles, according to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
Johnson has been an up-and-coming assistant during his time coaching under Dan Mullen. He made a name for himself in the coaching ranks when he helped develop former Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott. Along with others, he also adds Kyle Trask, who signed at Florida as a no-name quarterback, to his impressive resume.
Johnson has been rumored to be a head coaching candidate in recent years, and he recently interviewed for the Boise State head coaching job, too. However, with Dan Mullen calling plays at Florida, Johnson was more of a college quarterbacks coach, and now, he’s becoming a quarterbacks coach in the NFL.
Eventually, Johnson will become a head coach somewhere, either in college or the NFL.
