Jonathan Decoster joins the Florida Gators after a decade with the Cleveland Browns and several stops at the college level. He spent first season with the Browns as an offensive quality control coach before being named an offensive assistant in 2022. He helped the Browns lead the NFL in rushing average in 2021 with a 5.09 mark, the highest average by a Browns team since 1966. The team's 6,090 scrimmage yards were the fourth-most by the club in a single-season. RB Nick Chubb finished second in the league in rushing yards.

Decoster began his coaching career as a graduate assistant offensive line coach at Nevada, where he helped develop future Browns All-Pro G Joel Bitonio, who became the second-highest draft pick in school history (second round, 2014). He later as offensive line coach, recruiting coordinator, strength coach and travel coordinator at West Virginia State from 2015-16. His offensive line helped the team set numerous school records, including the most touchdowns and points scored. He gained SEC experience in three seasons (2017-19) coaching the tight ends at LSU, where he developed future NFL TEs Foster Moreau (fourth round, 2019), Stephen Sullivan (seventh round, 2020) and Thaddeus Moss (undrafted free agent). Moss set the LSU single-season record for receptions and receiving yards by a tight end. He helped the Tigers capture the FBS National Championship after a 13-0 season in 2019. LSU led the nation in total offense, scoring offense and red zone offense in 2019 and finished second in passing offense.

He is a native of Miramar, Fla., and four-year starter at right tackle at the University of Louisiana-Lafayette from 2007-2010. He anchored an offensive line that finished seventh in the country rushing in both 2007 and 2008.

Time to just line up and back our boys. Keep the background static to a minimum if possible (I don't care HOW "venerated" a figure of Gator lore you are!) and simply let them all, players AND Coaches, entrenched or newcomer, DO THEIR JOBS and GROW TOGETHER.
All ANY of us really are focusing on, LONGING for, are RESULTS. That is ALL that matters now.
More wins than losses. Period.
