Gainesville, FL-- Florida Gators wide receivers coach Aubrey Hill resigned Friday, for personal reasons, on the day the team began fall practice.

"Aubrey didn't want to be a distraction to our team and our football program," said UF head coach Will Muschamp. "And he thought it was best for him to move on."

"I have too much love and respect for this program to become a distraction as I deal with some personal issues," Hill said.

Offensive Coordinator Brent Pease and former Graduate Assistant Bush Hamdan will coach the wide receivers.

Aubrey Hill's name has beenmentionedinthe recruiting scandal at the University of Miami, but no sanctions have been announced.
