Coaching changesEdit

Prior to the start of the season, defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt left his position at Florida State to take the same job at the University of Georgia.[2] Linebackers coach Charles Kelly was promoted to defensive coordinator[3] while wide receivers coach Lawrence Dawsey and quarterbacks coach Randy Sanders were promoted as offensive coordinators. To round out the coaching staff, Bill Miller was hired to coach linebackers.[4]

Spring gameEdit

The annual 'Garnet & Gold Game' was held on April 12 at Doak S. Campbell Stadium. The Garnet team, led by quarterback Jameis Winston, was victorious with a 31–14 win over the Gold team.[5]
