Bedford leaving Florida for Louisville

NEW ORLEANS -- Florida's coaching situation is getting more unsettled.

Cornerbacks coach Vance Bedford is leaving the Gators to become defensive coordinator at Louisville. New Louisville coach Charlie Strong, still working as Florida's defensive coordinator, hired Bedford even though he said last week he didn't plan to take anyone from Florida with him.

Bedford will coach the Sugar Bowl on Friday, then head to Louisville with Strong.

His departure could mean at least three new assistants for Florida in 2010. Florida coach Urban Meyer, who is taking an indefinite leave after the Sugar Bowl, already hired a new receivers coach. Now he has to replace Strong and Bedford.
