GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Florida coach Jim McElwain said maligned offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier will coach from the press box rather than the field this Saturday against No. 23 Tennessee as the No. 24 Gators look for answers with their struggling offense.

McElwain announced the change on the SEC coaches teleconference Wednesday.

“He’s actually going to move back up this game,” he said. “He started there that first season. It was good for him to get down on the field to communicate with the quarterbacks a year ago, and in this case he’ll be back upstairs.”

Nussmeier has been under scrutiny from the fan base after Florida managed just 3 offensive points and 192 yards in a season-opening 33-17 loss to Michigan. His offenses have ranked 116th and 111th nationally the last two years.

McElwain said last week he would not take over play-calling from Nussmeier at this time. Instead, he’ll hope a different vantage point for the offensive coordinator will lead to a more effective performance.

“I think him being able to see it in kind of a sterile environment is something that would help,” McElwain said.
