Charles Huff
Position: Defensive Line Coach
Hometown: Portal, Ga.
High School: Portal
Alma Mater: Presbyterian College
Graduating Year: 1985
Major: History

Charles Huff joined the Hatters coaching staff in July, 2014. Huff comes to Stetson from Northern Arizona University, where he coached defensive backs for three seasons.

No stranger to Florida where he has extensive coaching experience, the Portal, Georgia, native played collegiately at Presbyterian College before a four-year NFL career that included two seasons with the San Francisco 49ers (1985-86) and two with the Atlanta Falcons (1987-88). He joined the 49ers the same season at Hall of Famer Jerry Rice, and played in the secondary alongside another Hall of Famer, Ronnie Lott.

He started his coaching career in 1989 at his alma mater (1989-91) and has since made coaching stops at Murray State (1191-93), West Alabama (1993-94), Austin Peay State (1994-97), UCF (1997-2003), Norfolk State (2004), Florida A&M (2005-07), Miles College (2010) and Northern Arizona (2011-13).

Throughout his career Huff has coached virtually every position on the defensive side of the ball. He will work with the defensive line for the Hatters.

His recruiting ties in Florida are of specific strength. During his career, he recruited and coached defensive back and future NFL star Asante Samuel at Central Florida, as well as ends Elton Patterson (UCF), Reshard Jentry (UCF) and Anthony Hutch (Murray State) to All-America honors. Samuel and Patterson were both selected in the NFL Draft in 2003 in the fourth and seventh rounds, respectively. Samuel has been a three-time Pro Bowler and two-time Super Bowl champion during his career and currently plays for the Philadelphia Eagles.

As a collegiate player, Huff was a three-time All-American and all-conference selection at Presbyterian College. He holds school records for punt and kick return average and career interceptions (20). He graduated with a degree in history and education from Presbyterian in 1985.

Huff fills the final vacancy on the Stetson coaching staff after the retirement of Dennis Danielson. The other two new members of the staff are offensive line coach Tim Holt and tight ends coach Matt Diniak.
