For now, Steve Addazio is still the offensive coordinator at Florida.  But after coaching the Gators against Penn State in the Outback Bowl on New Year's Day, Addazio will become another piece of the coaching carousel.  One program in the market for a new head coach is Temple, who saw head coach Al Golden leave to accept the same position at Miami.  After losing a promising recruit to Golden in the move, the Owls may feel the pressure to select a new man quickly, and begin preparing for the future.

The Philadelphia Inquirier is reporting that Addazio was in town on Monday to discuss the open head coaching position at Temple.  Addazio, a Connecticut native, has been on Urban Meyer's offensive staff for his entire tenure at Florida.  Despite criticism for this year's offensive struggles, he is still credited for helping put together the high-octane offense that won two national championships in three years between 2006-2008.

Other names connected to the Temple job have been current offensive coordinator Matt Rhule, who called the plays for Golden this past season, and Pittsburgh offensive coordinator Frank Cignetti. Cignetti is not guaranteed a job after the "resignation" of Dave Wannstedt, though there is a possibility he could be retained by new head coach Michael Haywood.

Well........I'm going to wish Steve Addazio the best of fortunes in his future.  That being said.  His offensive line this year was in shambles, and he was the position coach.  Total dissary throughout the year.  No need to rehash his ability to function as an offensive coordinator.  His era is over at UF,and I will say this...............He needed to go.  Period.  

And thankfully he will.

It will be tough to see such a good recruiter go, obviously I dont like his coaching plan, but his ability to get kids to come to UF was second to none

Report: Addazio speaking with Temple

It wasn't really one year of sputtering but rather both years under Addazio Florida's offense sputtered and was pretty bad.  They had Tim Tebow carry the load the year before in an offense that was a shade of its former self under Dan Mullen.  Addazio is popular up in the Northeast and should land a gig somewhere but his days at Florida are over no matter what.
