Amid one of the worst defensive seasons in program history, the Florida Gators on Friday fired a pair of assistants in the secondary as head coach Dan Mullen remakes his staff. Cornerbacks coach Torrian Gray and safeties coach Ron English will not return to the team next season, according to 247Sports‘ Thomas Goldkamp and the Orlando Sentinel‘s Edgar Thompson.

Florida allowed nearly 31 points per game to opposing offenses in 2020, the most in over a century. The Gators ranked 100th out of 127 teams nationally in passing defense.

With changes coming to defensive assistants, it appears likely that embattled defensive coordinator Todd Grantham will remain with the program entering the 2021 season. However, Grantham may see an adjustment to his responsibilities if he remains with Florida, a source tells OnlyGators.com.
