There has been more movement by the UCF Football front office, as expected. As of Friday night, Offensive Graduate Assistant Rob Calabrese is no longer with the UCF program after seven years of affiliation.

Calabrese said his goodbyes around 7 p.m. via Twitter, expressing his joys of working with the program since being hired by former head coach and Director of Athletics George O’Leary.

“Thank you UCF nation for 7 great years! I appreciate the support through everything and will always bleed black and gold!” Calabrese tweeted.

Following a year on the Oviedo High School coaching staff, Calabrese joined the team as an offensive graduate assistant in 2014. Prior to that, Calabrese dressed with the Knights and played quarterback from 2008 to 2010. He later missed 2011 with an injury and played as quarterback and wide receiver in 2012.

This move comes after the hiring of head coach Scott Frost, and his new assistants, Troy Walters from the University of Colorado and Ryan Held, who played alongside Frost while at Nebraska.
