Florida football head coach Dan Mullen announced he will be bringing Billy Gonzales and John Hevesy with him from Mississippi State.

In only his second day on the job, Mullen's already hit the ground running with the new hires as they hit the recruiting trail starting today.

Gonzales was Mississippi State's wide receivers coach for the past five years, and spent four of those seasons as co-offensive coordinator as well. During Florida's BCS National Championship games in 2006 and 2008 he was part of the staff as the wide receivers coach. During his tenure the Bulldogs managed their three highest team single-season receiving yard totals.

Gonzales already met with 4-star wide receiver Malik Heath, the No. 1-ranked player in Mississippi, today. He received an offer from Mullen yesterday:

Hevesy spent nine seasons at Mississippi State, serving as co-offensive coordinator and offensive line coach the past three seasons. He'll be making his return to Florida as well, after training tight ends and the offensive line there from 2005-07. During his time at Mississippi State the team accomplished its top seven single-season total offensive yard marks in program history.

The staff is already hitting the recruiting trail hard. They offered another 4-star wide receiver, Stephen Guidry, on Monday as well.
