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.
