The Florida Gators are certainly not where they wanted to be at this point in 2013. After the major letdown against Louisville in the Sugar Bowl this past January, this season was supposed to be redemption for a squad that is in possession of one of the best defenses in the nation, and had an experienced QB returning as well.
But, injuries have derailed all of that, and now the Gators currently sit at 4-3 through seven games.
Even with the fact of the injuries, however, that still doesn’t stop some from throwing out the notion that it may be time for Muschamp to make some changes on the coaching staff, particularly getting rid of offensive coordinator Brent Pease.
With the Gators ranking 106th in total offense this year, after ranking near the bottom 20 on total offense the last two seasons, this isn’t surprising one bit.
But, Muschamp disagrees. Not just with firing Pease, but making any changes to the staff whatsoever.
First, he points out to everyone that this is the same staff that came pretty darn close last year to playing for the national championship:
“This is the same staff that came a game away from playing for [the] national championship, OK?” he said. “Obviously, we’re not where we want to be right now, and nobody knows that more than our staff.
In his mind, all the Gators coaching staff needs to do it get back to the drawing board and coach everyone back up:
“So we need to go back and reevaluate what we’re doing and continue to improve our football team over the next five weeks.”
