It's safe to say it came as a bit of a shock when receivers coach and recruiting coordinator Aubrey Hill resigned from the Florida program earlier this month.
Despite his unexpected departure, UF still has enough pieces in place to overcome the loss of the its player-turned-coach.
Hill has been a lifetime Gator—first as a wide receiver on three SEC championship teams before working his way up the coaching ranks.
The Miami native eventually found his way back home as a receivers coach and recruiting coordinator for the Hurricanes before returning to the Swamp in 2011.
However, according to Michael DiRocco of GatorNation, Hill resigned from his post at UF amidst speculation about his link to a former Hurricanes booster who provided improper benefits to athletes.
Although Hill was certainly a valuable asset on the football staff, a new-look offense and the leadership of head coach Will Muschamp should help overcome his loss.
Let's take a look at five reasons why UF can still succeed without Hill.
