SEC assistants on the move

We've already seen several assistants on the move in the SEC, some by their own choosing and others not.

The next could be Alabama assistant head coach/linebackers coach Sal Sunseri, who's being wooed by Jimbo Fisher at Florida State. They're supposed to talk this week.

Alabama may also have to fight off Georgia to keep defensive coordinator Kirby Smart. The Bulldogs are expected to make a lucrative run at Smart for their defensive coordinator job after Mark Richt overhauled his defensive staff last week, firing coordinator Willie Martinez, defensive ends coach Jon Fabris and co-coordinator/linebackers coach John Jancek.

Tennessee has already lost two coaches. Receivers coach Frank Wilson accepted a job on the LSU staff as running backs coach and recruiting coordinator, while running backs coach/special teams coordinator Eddie Gran is joining Fisher at Florida State.

Meanwhile, Florida defensive coordinator Charlie Strong is the leading candidate to get the Louisville head coaching job and could be named this week. There's a chance he could take somebody with him from the Florida staff, possibly receivers coach and recruiting coordinator Billy Gonzales.
