Report: Brad Lawing will join Florida staff
South Carolina defensive line coach Brad Lawing will accept the same position on Will Muschamp’s staff at Florida, according to reports.
Lawing has been at South Carolina under Steve Spurrier since 2006. He was also to Carolina in 1998-99 under Sparky Woods and Brad Scott.
ESPN’s Chris Low ranks Lawing as one of the top assistants in the SEC, listing him as one his “Dandy Dozen” conference coaches. According to Low, Lawing is:
One of the more underrated coaches in the SEC, Lawing has been doing it for a long time at a very high level. His defensive lines at South Carolina have been excellent the past few years and are one of the big reasons the Gamecocks have made their move into the SEC’s upper tier.
Lawing replaces Dan Quinn, who was recently named Seattle Seahawks’ defensive coordinator.
