Florida hires Duke's Roper as new OC
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A person familiar with the situation says Duke offensive coordinator Kurt Roper has agreed to take the same position with Florida.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on Tuesday night on condition of anonymity because the hiring has not been announced.
ESPN was the first to report the selection.
A Florida spokesman declined comment when reached by The Associated Press.
Roper is expected to remain with the Blue Devils through the Chick-fil-A Bowl on Dec. 31.
