Holliday played for the Mountaineers and was a long-time assistant for Don Nehlen from 1979-1999. He is currently a part of Urban Meyer's staff at Florida.
Falcons assistant Brian Van Gorder is leaving the team to take the defensive coordinator position on Steve Spurrier's staff at South Carolina. Van Gorder is the former head coach at Georgia Southern and also spent several years as the defensive coordinator at Georgia for Mark Richt.
