Alabama offensive analyst Mike Locksley has decided to stay in Tuscaloosa instead of joining Jim McElwain’s staff at Florida.


Alabama offensive analyst Mike Locksley is a highly sought after assistant coach that is well known for his recruiting acumen, so it is no shock that Florida and head coach Jim McElwain were working hard to get him to come to Gainesville.

In the end, Locksley has decided to stay in Tuscaloosa, per Brett McMurphy. He will likely take the place of offensive line coach after Mario Cristobal accepted a position at Oregon as co-offensive coordinator under new head coach Willie Taggart.

Locksley has a long history of working with offenses in numerous roles, including offensive coordinator in stops at Illinois and Maryland. He had previously served in the SEC as Florida’s running back coach and recruiting coordinator in 2003-04 under Ron Zook.

The miss by McElwain to attract Locksley to the Gators staff is a big one, as he could have been a major asset in recruiting – the Gators currently have only one commit in their 2018 class – and helping fix an offense that finished 116th in the nation in yards per game, gaining just 344 per outing.

Much like new offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian, Locksley was hired by Nick Saban as an analyst for the 2016 season, working with former coordinator Lane Kiffin in leading the Tide to the College Football Playoff National Championship Game.
