Florida Spring Game 2014: Will Muschamp pleased with new-look Gators offense


It wasn’t just last season during the abysmal 4-8 campaign that the Florida Gators’ offense has been called into question, rather it’s been throughout the entire Will Muschamp era in Gainesville, basically. That’s why this past December, the school and Muschamp went out and hired offensive Kurt Roper from Duke after the major success he’s had at the ACC school.

On Saturday during the team’s annual spring scrimmage, the new-look offense was on display for everyone to see, and Muschamp was pleased with what he saw initially.

“I’m extremely pleased with the day offensively with 15 practices and how far we’ve come,” head coach Will Muschamp said. “I think you can attribute all that to [new coordinator] Kurt Roper and the offensive staff and the job they’ve done.

Saturday also marked the return of starting QB Jeff Driskel to run this new system after missing a good portion of last season with a broken leg. In the new offense, Driskel finished the afternoon with 167 yards and one touchdown strike, a 31-yarder to Demarcus Robinson.
