Florida State defensive end coach D.J. Eliot takes Kentucky coordinator job

Bob Donnan-US PRESSWIRE

As expected, Florida State defensive coordinator D.J. Eliot has accepted the defensive coordinator position at Kentucky, joining new Kentucky head coach Mark Stoops, the former defensive coordinator of Florida State, according to a report by Coaching Search.

Eliot did a great job with Florida State's defensive ends, and is an up-and-comer in the profession.

The 36-year old Eliot is originally from Oklahoma and coached at Rice before coming to Tallahassee.

Tomahawk Nation recently posed the question if Eliot would be a good choice as Florida State's defensive coordinator, noting that it was quite risky given his complete lack of experience running a defense.

Kentucky is a good entry-level position for a coordinator like Eliot, and an excellent addition to the Kentucky staff.
