Fisher, Glover Join the UCF Football Staff as Quality Assistants
Fisher played for UCF from 1999-01; Glover spent this past spring with the Knights.
ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) – UCF football head coach George O’Leary announced Monday the addition of two members to his coaching staff. Former Knight Travis Fisher will serve as defensive quality assistant while Will Glover will be the program’s offensive quality assistant.
Fisher spent the 1999-01 seasons as a Knight after two years at Coffeyville Community College in Kansas. Born in Tallahassee and a graduate of Godby High School, the cornerback racked up 130 tackles as a Knight, including 61 during his senior campaign. He currently ranks seventh on the all-time list with 31 break-ups in his collegiate career.
Following his days in a Black and Gold jersey, Fisher was selected by the St. Louis Rams in the second round with the 64th overall pick of the 2002 NFL Draft, and ranks as the third-highest draft pick in UCF history (Daunte Culpepper 11th pick in 1999, Torell Troup 41st pick in 2010). He went on to play five seasons with the Rams, two with the Detroit Lions and one with the Seattle Seahawks, while he also joined the Baltimore Ravens in 2010.
Glover joined the Knights as a volunteer this past spring, and hails from Tampa where he starred as a wide receiver at Jesuit High School. One football mind that saw potential in Glover out of high school was Coach O’Leary, who was serving as Georgia Tech’s head coach at the time. With the Yellow Jackets from 1999-02, Glover quickly broke into the school’s record book. He currently ranks sixth with 122 career receptions and 13th with 1,316 receiving yards.
Professionally, Glover played for the Lakeland Thunderbolts of the National Indoor Football League and received looks from the New York Jets as well as the CFL.
