A former Penn State staffer is out at Florida.

As first reported by Bruce Feldman of The Athletic, Florida partnered ways with co-defensive coordinator/ defensive line coach Sean Spencer. 

Spencer spent six seasons at Penn State from 2014-2019. He was the defensive line coach for the entirety of his tenure and spent the final four years as run game coordinator as well. 

A Clarion alum near Pittsburgh, Spencer coached players including Anthony Zettel, Austin Johnson, Carl Nassib and Kevin Givens at PSU.

Penn State totaled the seventh-most sacks in the country (45) and third best in the Big Ten during the 2019 season, which became the fifth year in a row the Nittany Lions recorded 40 or more sacks. Penn State led all teams in sacks both in 2015 (50) and 2018 (47).

Spencer spent two seasons at Florida before departing the program.
