TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida State offensive coordinator James Coley is leaving his alma mater for the same job at archrival Miami.

The 39-year-old Coley is the sixth Seminole assistant leaving Jimbo Fisher's staff since the end of the season along with the school's football publicist. Fisher's lone remaining assistants are holdovers from former coach Bobby Bowden's staff. They are former Seminole players Lawrence Dawsey and Odell Haggins and offensive line coach Rick Trickett.

Defensive coordinator Mark Stoops left to become head coach at Kentucky and took D.J. Eliot with him. Running backs coach Eddie Gran went to Cincinnati as offensive coordinator, linebackers coach Greg Hudson left to become defensive coordinator at Purdue and quarterbacks coach Dameyune Craig returned to Auburn in a similar role.

Miami announced Coley's hiring on its website Thursday afternoon.
