Louisville has hired Florida offensive line coach Mike Summers, the school announced Saturday.

Summers will serve in the same position with the Cardinals, along with a role as co-offensive coordinator.

ESPN’s Brett McMurphy was the first to report the news.

Summers previously served as offensive line coach at Louisville from 2003-06.

Summers had been at Florida since 2014 as its offensive line coach. Before then, he was at USC, Kentucky and made a stop in the NFL with the Atlanta Falcons.

The loss of Summers goes along with the Gators having to replace two starters from 2016. Left tackle David Sharpe has elected to leave early for the NFL, while starting center Cam Dillard is leaving the school as a graduate transfer.

Earlier this week, Mississippi State hired away Louisville defensive coordinator Todd Grantham to take over the same position.
