Stan Drayton hired as running backs coach

Florida Running Backs coach Stan Drayton was hired for the same position with Tennessee, the Knoxville News-Sentinel reports.

Why the lateral move? Perhaps this paragraph is telling:

He also coached running backs at Villanova from 1996-2000, where he worked with Richmond coach Dave Clawson.

Clawson is one of the candidates who interviewed for the OC position. Does this mean Clawson already has the job and is filling out his staff? Guess we'll find out soon.

I can't say I'm immediately enthusiastic about this hire considering how dismally Florida's running backs have performed the past two years. The last time we picked up a coach from Florida was Jimmy Ray Stephens as offensive line coach, which was generally-regarded to be a bad hire for the Vols. Stephens was fired after The Season of Which We Do Not Speak along with Wide Receivers Coach Pat Washington.
