Leak was with the Gators this spring as Florida's players and coaches worked to install Roper's offense. "Chris is a bright young coach," Muschamp said in a statement. "He is one of the all-time Gator greats and being at Florida is very important to him. He has been working with coach Roper and our offensive staff and is very familiar with our players and new system."
