Florida Atlantic Owls Roster 2019 Owls Roster

Head Coach: Lane Kiffin        2017 Salary: $950,000        Offensive Coordinator: Charlie Weis Jr.       Defensive Coordinator: Tony Pecoraro         

Stadium: FAU Stadium       Surface: Grass        City: Boca Raton        State: Florida

The Lane Kiffin project started with small glimpses of improvement in 2017. In reality, the full picture wasn't to be painted within the first season at the helm. The Kiffin hiring was to improve the program at a steady clip. Stronger recruiting classes and more intriguing prospects have placed this program on their radars, calling for steady progression in 2018. The Owls are ranked just outside the top-25, the highest point the program has ever reached. The talent is prevalent, but untested. De'Andre Johnson takes the reigns at quarterback. He is a gifted runner but will have to refine his passing game to adopt dual-threat capabilities. The backfield is centered around one of the nation's most talented runners in Devin Singletary. Defensive coordinator Tony Pecoraro comes over hand-selected by Kiffin. His defense returns 10 of last season's starters, a promising look for an aggressive approach and rebuild. Having knowledgeable players at all tiers of the defense will bode well for this transition. The biggest thing this roster has going for it is that it is relatively young.

The key players are either in their second or third years of eligibility, boasting for that desired improvement that was to be claimed when Kiffin was hired. Two ranked opponents fill-out the impressive schedule this season. While contests against Oklahoma and UCF won't be easy, they mark for a recognition that the team can carry to schedule building in the future. They are now a team that is within the sights of the playoff committee, a strong stance for improving the outlook of the Owls in 2018 and onward.
