GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Florida defensive line coach Bryant Young has resigned to “pursue more time with my family.”

A four-time Pro Bowler who played 14 seasons with the San Francisco 49ers, Young joined coach Will Muschamp’s staff in 2011 after one year at San Jose State and another at Notre Dame.

Young says, “After heavy consideration and giving over two decades to the game of football, I have made a personal decision to resign from my position at the University of Florida in order to pursue more time with my family. … I have come to the realization that it is time to invest more in my family during this fleeting season in life.”

Muschamp says Young’s decision is “strictly a personal decision and has nothing to do with NCAA compliance.”
