Florida State announces hire of Randy Sanders

Sanders - Bud Elliott (SB Nation)

Tallahassee, FL - Florida State head football coach Jimbo Fisher completed his coaching staff with the hiring of Randy Sanders.

Sanders comes to Florida State from the University of Kentucky where he served as the Wildcats' offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach since 2009. The Morristown, Tenn. Native has spent his entire coaching career in the SEC where he began as a volunteer assistant with the Volunteers in 1989. Sanders has served as the offensive coordinator at both Tennessee and Kentucky and has been a part of coaching staffs that have been to 21 bowl games in his coaching career, including the 1999 National Championship game at Tennessee where he served as the offensive coordinator for the Fiesta Bowl win that year.

"I am very excited to be at Florida State," said Sanders. "I have been coaching since 1989, the same year I got married. Right around that time I had a discussion with my wife on where I would like to coach and there were four schools on my list and Florida State was one of those schools. That was one of the first things she reminded me of when the opportunity came along. I have always wanted to coach here.

"I am getting the opportunity to coach with a group of guys, for the most part, that I have known a lot of them and that I have a lot of respect for. I get to work with some of the best players in the country at a school that has some of college football's greatest traditions. There's not a whole lot not to like."
