GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Florida’s unsettled coaching staff reportedly has another vacancy.

FOX Sports’ Bruce Feldman reports that new Tennessee head coach Jeremy Pruitt is expected to hire Gators defensive line coach Chris Rumph.

Rumph was one of four Florida assistant coaches new Gators coach Dan Mullen had kept aboard for the time being after taking over last week. The others are running backs coach Ja’Juan Seider, offensive line coach Brad Davis and linebackers coach Tim Skipper.

Rumph seemed among the most likely of that group to remain after the transition and into the future. In addition to being popular with the players, he was under contract through the 2019 season at an annual salary of $590,000 plus escalating retention bonuses.

He and dismissed defensive coordinator Randy Shannon were the only assistants on former coach Jim McElwain’s staff with contracts beyond next season.

Now it looks like the Gators have yet another spot to fill.

Mullen has made three hires so far, bringing his co-offensive coordinators Billy Gonzales and John Hevesy from Mississippi State as well as Bulldogs defensive coordinator Todd Grantham.

Those three and the three McElwain holdovers, whose futures at Florida aren’t assured yet, comprise the Gators’ current coaching staff and have been working to pull the program’s 2018 recruiting class together.

Upon taking over, Mullen dismissed Shannon, offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier, wide receivers coach Kerry Dixon, tight ends coach Greg Nord and defensive backs coach Corey Bell.
