There’s a new name floating around out there as a possibility for becoming the new defensive coordinator at Florida: Charlie Harbison, the co-defensive coordinator at Clemson.

Before going to Clemson after the 2008 season, Harbison was the defensive coordinator at Mississippi State for one year. Before that, he spent four years as the wide receivers coach at Alabama.

He’s a relatively young guy and he has a reputation for being a strong recruiter (and strong family man), qualities Urban Meyer always seems to be looking for when hiring assistant coaches.

The word is that the Gators will name a new co-defensive coordinator in the next day or two. Harbison has been under the radar up until now. But he’s a guy to definitely keep an eye on.
