Former Penn State Assistant Penn Assistant Sean Spencer Is Now Heading To Florida

After reportedly being hired to be a part of Duke’s coaching staff a few days ago, former Penn State and New York Giants defensive line coach Sean Spencer will now be taking the defensive line coach and co-defensive coordinator position at the University of Florida. This report is according to Blake Alderman of 24/7 sports.

Spencer was set to be the co-defensive coordinator for the Duke Blue Devils under Mike Elko, but apparently, plans have changed. That report came out Tuesday evening a few hours after New York Giants Joe Judge was let go by the Giants. Spencer will help call plays for the Gator’s defense along with safeties coach Patrick Toney under new coach Billy Napier.

 Spencer coached Penn State for six seasons from 2014-2019 and helped get players such as Carl Nassib, Yetur Gross-Matos, Shariff Miller, and most recently Odafe Oweh to the NFL, with Oweh being a 2021 first-round draft pick of the Baltimore Ravens. While he was with the Giants, he helped Dexter Lawrence become an elite run defender as well as helping Leonard Williams become one of the best pass-rushing interior linemen in the league.

Spencer is also one of the best recruiting assistant coaches in college football and that is paramount when you are at the University of Florida.
