Searels is making a hefty $451,000 at Texas, but the staff is in limbo after the resignation of head coach Mack Brown last week. He doesn't seem to have a working history with anyone on the offensive staff.
Prospect number two comes from Western Kentucky where Neil Callaway landed in 2013 to be the offensive line coach for Bobby Petrino. Callaway has 22 years of coaching experience in the SEC on the offensive line at Auburn (12), Alabama (4), and Georgia (6). He also spent five years as the head coach at UAB.
Callaway is intriguing with his 10 years of experience as an offensive line coach and offensive coordinator in the SEC. Having another coordinator in the staff room is likely not a bad thing. Callaway is currently making $90,000 at Western Kentucky.
Both Searels and Callaway were known to be on the short list for the job two years ago when Tim Davis was hired.
The new name on our board is ousted USC offensive line coach Mike Summers. USC head coach Steve Sarkisian did not retain Summers on the staff. Summers coached the three previous years with Florida receiver coach Joker Phillips while Phillips was the head coach at Kentucky. Before that he spent time with Bobby Petrino at Louisville, the Atlanta Falcons, and Arkansas. He does not have a listed salary at USC.
Stay tuned as we keep you posted on the current staff position opening at Florida.
