TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Greg Hudson, who has served as East Carolina University's defensive coordinator for the past five seasons, has officially been appointed assistant head coach defense/linebacker's coach at Florida State University according to an announcement by first-year Seminole head coach Jimbo Fisher Wednesday.
Hudson, who joined the Pirate staff shortly after Skip Holtz' arrival in December 2004, initially coached safeties before guiding the linebacking position beginning in 2006.
"We're all excited for Greg and the opportunity he has in front of him," ECU Head Football Coach Skip Holtz said. "At the same time, we certainly owe him a debt of gratitude for his efforts to our program - there's no question Greg impacted Pirate Football in many ways while he was here. I respect and support his decision to do what he feels is in the best interest of his career and family. Needless to say, I'm happy for Greg and wish him nothing but the best."
Hudson's 20-year career also includes full-time stops at Minnesota (2001-04), Cincinnati (1997-2000), Connecticut (1994-96) and the University of Redlands (1990-1992).
