So, what is an "Assistant Coordinator"?  Well, you would have to ask Bob Stoops or Urban Meyer.  These 2 head coaches are the only coaches in the country that have an assistant coach with the responsibility and title of Assistant Coordinator.

Oklahoma lists Jay Norvell as the Assistant Offensive Coordinator.

Oklahoma lists Bobby Jack Wright as the Assistant Defensive Coordinator.

Florida lists Chuck Heater as the Assistant Defensive Coordinator.

Let's be honest, though. Stoops and Meyer know what they are doing.  Unless you live in a cave, you might remember the Gators and Sooners played for the national championship last season.
