Sources say Addazio adding to Temple staff

Posted: January 13, 2011

Several sources have confirmed that former Florida defensive coordinator Chuck Heater will assume the same position at Temple for new coach Steve Addazio, the former Florida offensive coordinator.

The two were both at last night's Owl basketball game at the Liacouras Center against St. Bonaventure.

Heater, who shared the defensive coordinator duties at Florida with Teryl Austin last season, arrived at Florida in 2005 as a recruiting coordinator/cornerbacks coach. In 2008-09, he was assistant defensive coordinator. He held assistant coaching positions at nine other colleges, including Utah, Washington, Colorado and Notre Dame.

Those sources also say that Addazio has added two others to his staff, both from Marshall: defensive line coach Sean Cronin and wide receivers coach Zach Smith, who will become the special teams coordinator.
