Florida Coach Aubrey Hill Resigns

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — University of Florida receivers coach and recruiting coordinator Aubrey Hill, who has been linked to a former University of Miami booster who allegedly provided improper benefits to numerous athletes, has resigned because of personal reasons.

The school released a statement announcing the move Friday.

“Aubrey informed me he was resigning for personal reasons that have nothing to do with the University of Florida,” UF coach Will Muschamp said in a statement. “Aubrey didn’t want to be a distraction to our team and our football program and he thought it was best for him to move on.”

Hill did not elaborate on his reason for resigning other than to say he did not want to be a distraction.

“I have too much love and respect for this program to become a distraction as I deal with some personal issues,” Hill said. “I’m thankful for the opportunity to have worked with Coach Muschamp, a tremendous staff, and a great group of players. The future is very bright here and the University of Florida will always have a special place in my heart.”
