Florida coach Will Muschamp confirmed Sunday that strength and conditioning coach Mickey Marotti has left the program to join Urban Meyer at Ohio State.

"Mickey left to go to Ohio State, but our coaching staff is intact," Muschamp said during the Gator Bowl conference call.

Muschamp said finding someone to replace Marotti will be a key to UF's success.

"That's a critical hire," Muschamp said.

Muschamp also said defensive tackle Dominique Easley will not play in the bowl because he'll have ACL surgery this week.
