Billy Gonzales Going To LSU

Just when you thought the Gators had survived Charlie Strong going to Louisville without any UF assistants, the Orlando Sentinel reports that receivers coach Billy Gonzales is going to LSU.

Gonzales' wife, Julie, said nothing is finalized because the change is happening fast, but Gonzales is in talks to become the "pass-game coordinator" while also coaching wide receivers. LSU's offensive coordinator is Gary Crowton...Gonzales told the Sentinel earlier in the week that he didn't have immediate plans to leave the Gators.

Most of the message board rumors had Gonzales to Louisville and Meyer looking outside the program for a new defensive coordinator. Now it appears that Meyer needs a new receivers coach and fix whatever offensive staff issues there may be. Educated fans know that Gonzales was a part of the three-headed monster calling plays with Steve Addazio and Urban Meyer. Perhaps there were behind the scenes workings that led to Gonzales to cut ties with a head coach he has worked with at Bowling Green and Utah.
