FILE – In this Aug. 5, 2016, file photo, Florida associate coach Randy Shannon speaks to the media during the university’s NCAA college football media day in Gainesville, Fla. Shannon is shaking things up as Florida’s interim coach. The former Miami head coach replaced Jim McElwain and needed less than a day to make changes. Shannon opened up the quarterback job. He promoted Chris Rumph to defensive coordinator. And he elevated former Idaho head coach Robb Akey to defensive line coach. He also tweaked parts of practice and put an increased emphasis on special teams. (AP Photo/Phil Sandlin, File)
