The search is on for the Florida Gators’ new offensive coordinator. For the first time since Brent Pease was let go, there is movement from Coach Will Muschamp to fill the opening.

On Monday, Pete Roussel of CoachingSearch.com reported that Muschamp is meeting with Duke Blue Devils offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Kurt Roper.

Roper joined Duke head coach David Cutcliffe’s staff when he was hired in 2008. Prior to 2008, Roper coached the running backs at Tennessee from 2007-06, helping to develop Arian Foster into an NFL star. Cutcliffe was the Vols’ offensive coordinator during that time period.

Roper was with Ole Miss for six years earlier in his career, and was responsible for developing Eli Manning into the “2003 SEC Player of the Year” and No. 1 overall pick.

Duke finished the regular season with the No. 49-ranked scoring offense in the country, averaging 31.6 points per game. That number is slightly higher than the Blue Devils’ 31.5 points per game in 2012. The year prior to Roper taking over Duke’s offense, the Blue Devils averaged a measly 17.9 points per game.

*UPDATE* Thomas Goldkamp of 247Sports.com reports that the UAA jet touched down in Raleigh, NC this morning.
