"I'm excited to keep the continuity of our play calling within our current staff," said Meyer. "Steve has played a key role in our offense in his time at Florida. Our entire offensive staff is involved in game planning and scripting plays. As always, I will remain very involved in the offensive game plan.
"We will still run the same type of offense. We will continue to put the ball in the hands of our best players, spread the field and try to take advantage of the best matchups. Billy Gonzales, Kenny Carter and John Hevesy will continue to be involved in the offensive game planning and play calling as they have all year."
Addazio is a 23-year coaching veteran and is completing his fourth year at Florida. He will be coaching in his ninth bowl game and has been on the coaching staff of five conference champions and will be making his second coaching appearance in a National Championship game.
"I'm honored to be named offensive coordinator," said Addazio. "I'm extremely humbled because I know it is a group effort of our offensive staff and players that have made us successful and will continue to make us successful. Coach Meyer's track record obviously speaks for itself with his previous coordinators."
Addazio replaces Dan Mullen, who was hired as Mississippi State's head coach in December. Mullen is the third former offensive coordinator under Meyer to be named head coach. (Mike Sanford Head Coach at UNLV, offensive coordinator at Utah, 2002-04; Gregg Brandon former Head Coach at Bowling Green, offensive coordinator at Bowling Green, 2001-02).
