Leavitt focusing on front seven, Edwards on DBs as FSU staff in transition

Florida State's defensive staff has been re-shaped in the last few weeks as analysts Jim Leavitt and Mario Edwards Sr. have been promoted to on-field, full-time assistant coaches.

Defensive coordinator Harlon Barnett said Tuesday that Leavitt is focusing his time on the Seminoles' front seven while Edwards is working with the defensive backs. If there are common themes to what Barnett said about Leavitt and Edwards it is experience and energy that they can bring to the Seminoles (6-5) as they prepare for a rivalry game at Florida on Nov. 30.
