GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Florida has fired defensive coordinator Todd Grantham and offensive line coach John Hevesy. Coach Dan Mullen parted with the two assistants one day after a 40-17 loss at South Carolina.

Mullen says linebackers coach Christian Robinson will call the defense beginning with Saturday’s game against Samford. Longtime Syracuse coach Paul Pasqualoni, a 72-year-old coaching veteran who had been Mullen’s special assistant, will take on an on-the-field role for the remainder of the season. Michael Sollenne, who has been with the team since 2020, will work with the offensive line for the rest of the year.
