Report: Will Muschamp will be back as Florida Gators head coach in 2014


2013 has been a disaster for Florida Gators head coach Will Muschamp and his team. Coming off a season which saw them competing in a BCS bowl, many in Gainesville had national hopes in their sights.

Well, with a myriad of injuries to starters all over the field, the Gators have stumbled through this season so far and will not even be going to a bowl game at all at the end of this season.

Saturday, things took a monumental turn for the worse when Florida was upset at home, in the Swamp, by Georgia Southern of the SoCon.

Once the clock hit all zeros after that fiasco, the cries for Will Muschamp’s ousting were louder than ever from a lot of Gator faithful throughout the country.

However, according to a report from the Orlando Sun-Sentinel, the school has no plans to fire the coach and he will return in the 2014 season to see if he can improve things with a healthy roster.

The report did indicate that while Muschamp will be back, there will need to be some significant changes made to the staff. In particular, I would expect that offensive coordinator Brent Pease won’t be returning. The Gators offense struggled even without the injuries.

    As a lifelong UK fan, I can say with much certainty that what the Gators were hit with this Season was a case of Joker-it is!

  • William Brady

    Changing OCs will make no difference. It’s not the OC, it’s Muschamp and his defense first scheme that limits the offense. Don’t blame the lack of discipline on the OC, blame the head coach. Next year, Muschamp will have all of his players so no excuses will be excepted. Florida is a prestigious coaching position and have proven coach, not an experiment. The talent that is their is being wasted by Muschamp. Foley has Zooked us again
