Former Florida offensive line coach Brad Davis will remain in the SEC, taking over the same job at Missouri.

Davis will replace Glen Elarbe, who left Mizzou to become the offensive line coach at UCF. UCF’s new coach is former Missouri offensive coordinator Josh Heupel.

Missouri will be Davis’ fourth stop in as many seasons. Davis, 37, spent 2016 at Florida, 2015 at North Texas and 2014 at East Carolina.

Footballscoop.com — a coach-centric website — reported Friday that new UF coach Dan Mullen attempted to retain Davis as tight ends coach. Mullen brought John Hevesy with him from Mississippi State to oversee the Gators’ offensive line.

Thursday, Mizzou hired linebacker coach Vernon Hargreaves II, who had spent the past three seasons at Arkansas. Coincidentally, Hargreaves has a UF connection, too, as he is the father of former Gators All-America cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III.
