Summers had been at Florida since 2014, and came to Gainesville one year after serving as Southern Cal’s offensive line coach and run game coordinator.
He also coached at Louisville from 2003-2006.
The Gators ranked as the SEC’s fourth-worst team in sacks allowed, giving up an average of 2.15 per game. The rushing game struggled behind Summers’ offensive line, with Florida finishing as the SEC’s worst rushing offense (128.2 yards per game).
Summers aided in the recruitment of Martez Ivey, who was ranked as the nation’s No. 1 offensive tackle in the 2015 recruiting class.
Florida has two offensive linemen in its 2017 class in 4-star offensive tackles Kadeem Telfort and T.J. Moore. Of the two, Telfort is an early enrollee.
