GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Florida coach Dan Mullen has made some new additions to his support staff.
The Gators have hired E.K. Franks and Otis Yelverton, according to the official team website. Franks and Yelverton will work in the Florida recruiting department and both are listed as assistant director of player personnel.
Franks comes to Florida from Arkansas, where he spent four years as the director of recruiting for the Razorbacks. Yelverton has been the defensive coordinator and defensive line coach at Copiah-Lincoln Community College since 2013.
Franks and Yelverton will work alongside Gators director of recruiting operations Lee Begley, who has been at UF since late November and worked with Mullen at Mississippi State. Florida’s former director of player of personnel, Drew Hughes, accepted the same role with Tennessee last week.
