"I'm honored to be joining Coach Muschamp and his staff," said Mike Summers. "I have the utmost respect for Coach Muschamp, the staff and the support system in place. Having been in the SEC I have always held the Florida program in high regard and I'm looking forward to getting right to work."
Summers spent 2003-09 with Bobby Petrino. Summers coached the offensive line for Petrino at Louisville (2003-06), the Atlanta Falcons (2007) and Arkansas (2008-09). In two seasons at Arkansas, Summers coached two future NFL players, center Jonathan Luigs and guard Mitch Petrus. The Razorbacks also led the SEC in scoring during the 2009 season.
Summers graduated from Georgetown (Ky.) College in 1978 and got his graduate degree from Kentucky. His experience in the SEC and NFL was an important factor for Florida head coach Will Muschamp.
"I'm excited to have Coach Summers join our staff," said Muschamp. "He has 34 years of experience, has been an offensive coordinator for 15 years and has coached in the SEC. He has a diverse background and has experience in the NFL. He will be a great addition to our staff."
