“I'm happy for Steve Addazio and his family. Steve has been extremely loyal to me and the University of Florida, and I will be forever thankful for his unwavering commitment.  His energy and passion have been well documented and he is a tremendous recruiter and motivator. He is well respected by his peers and his players and I wish him nothing but the best.”

– Urban Meyer, former Florida Head Coach

“Steve has been a big part of our success the last six years at the University of Florida. Everyone that knows Steve knows what a loyal and passionate coach he is. He cares deeply about the players he coaches, and he was a great motivator in the locker room. He has the ability to relate to players, but still maintains their respect. He was one of our top recruiters and his ties to the Northeast will be a good fit for Temple. More than anything, Coach Addazio is a good man with a good family. We wish him the best of luck.”

–  Jeremy Foley, Florida Director of Athletics

“He knows how to lead a team and get a team going. We love Coach Addazio to death.”

– Maurkice Pouncey, former Florida center and current Pittsburgh Steelers’ center

“Without a doubt, Steve Addazio is one of the most talented coaches I’ve ever been around. 

I can’t imagine a better fit in the country for Temple University and the city of Philadelphia than Steve Addazio. He is a star.”

– Bob Davie, College football analyst for ESPN and ABC

“Steve is a great football coach. He’s a great motivator. Players really respond to him. He has a great relationship with his players, and he gets his players to play hard for him. He’s very passionate about what he does, and those are all the things you look for in a coach.”

– Dan Mullen, Mississippi State Head Coach

“One of the best men you will ever meet. Steve is a great person.”

– Teryl Austin, Florida Defensive Coordinator / Cornerbacks Coach

“Steve Addazio helped the Gators weather the greatest of storms and landed several of the top prospects in what is the best recruiting class on paper over the past five recruiting cycles. For this, he is the 2010 national recruiter of the year.”

– J.C. Shurburtt,

“If you took that same poll among the players, their parents and his fellow coaches, Addazio would be the most popular in a landslide. Addazio’s loyalty, sincerity, and frankness are admirable, but his inner toughness has been his most valuable commodity.”
