Florida coach Will Muschamp announced Monday that director of player personnel Jon Haskins has resigned.
Muschamp said Haskins left the program in October, and he doesn’t have a timetable on hiring his replacement.
“We have an opening right now, but I’m busy coaching the team,” Muschamp said. “I don’t have a whole lot of time.”
Haskins’ primary responsibility was handling administrative duties for recruiting, which included coordinating on-campus official and unofficial visits of prospective student athletes.
Muschamp doesn’t feel like his departure will hinder Florida’s recruiting efforts moving forward.
“We’ll be fine,” he said. “He was in an administrative role. You can’t evaluate tape and those sort of things.”
The Gators have now had three members from their football recruiting offices leave in less than two years.
Haskins’ predecessor, Mark Pantoni, took the same position with Urban Meyer at Ohio State in December of 2011 after five years at UF.
In May of 2013, director of on-campus recruiting Brendan Donovan accepted a job with the Cleveland Browns as their college scouting administrator.
In the grand scheme of things, Haskins’ resignation isn’t a huge deal and won’t cost UF any prospects. However, it’s important for Muschamp to have a cohesive recruiting team intact, especially given the struggles on the field this season, and the recent staff turnover only makes his job harder.
