The SEC coaches and the media that cover the conference are pretty much in agreement when it comes to the Florida Gators and the All-SEC team.
A day after The Associated Press named seven Gators on its all-conference team, the league coaches had the same number on their team, which was released by the SEC on Tuesday.
The only difference between the coaches and the media is UF tight end Jordan Reed is on the coaches' second team, while he was on the first team in a vote of media members covering the conference.
The five Gators who made the coaches' first team are tailback Mike Gillislee, defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd, safety Matt Elam, place-kicker Caleb Sturgis and punter Kyle Christy. They also are on the AP first team.
UF's two second-team selections on the coaches' team are Reed and senior middle linebacker Jon Bostic.
The only team that has more players on the coaches' team is Alabama with eight, six on the first team.
The coaches' individual award winners (coach of the year and offensive and defensive players of the year) will be announced Wednesday. The all-freshman team will be released Thursday.
