Muschamp Hires Roper as Gators' New Offensive Coordinator/Quarterbacks Coach
GAINESVILLE, Fla. Via Gator Zone - Kurt Roper was one of five finalists this season for the Broyles Award, given annually to the nation's top assistant coach.
Gators coach Will Muschamp and Florida fans would like nothing more than for Roper to repeat as a finalist in 2014.
Muschamp made it official Thursday morning, announcing he has hired Roper as the Gators' new offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.
"I'm excited to have Coach Roper join our staff," Muschamp said. "He has a diverse, up-tempo background on offense and does a good job of adapting to what the players do best. The most important thing though is he has always remained balanced.
"He has had success calling plays in the SEC and has tutored three NFL quarterbacks. He has had players produce at every offensive position and he is one of the most well-respected coaches in the country."
Roper has spent the last six years as offensive coordinator at Duke under Blue Devils coach David Cutcliffe, a longtime mentor. Roper has worked with Cutcliffe every season but one since 1996 when he joined Tennessee's staff as a graduate assistant and Cutcliffe was the Vols' offensive coordinator.

Jacksonville Ranked As One Of Heaviest Drinking Cities In America
Jacksonville Fl - According to a recent study conducted by Sharecare, Jacksonville is ranked in the top 10 heaviest drinking cities for men and women. Some find this poll startling but some find it as getting Jacksonville on the "map".
Since the beginning, there has always been alot of drinking in Jacksonville but why so much? The answer lies in the fact that we are such a big city, not by population but by size and there is so little to do - or are there other factors to blame?
Until the last few years, people have been separated by rivers, the ditch at the beach & the lack of interest to drive to another area of town to find something to do. New campaigns have been sparking the interest of locals to travel out of their neighborhood to try something new causing this trend to change.
