Florida AD Jeremy Foley: Will Muschamp will be our coach for a long, long time

Thursday afternoon on the Paul Finebaum on the SEC Network, one of the guests was University of Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley. And of course, with just over a week until the college football season begins, he was asked about the future of head football coach Will Muschamp, to which he gave a very optimistic response.

Of course, this all stems from the devastating 4-8 season the team suffered through last year, just one year removed from making a BCS appearance in the Sugar Bowl and nearly missing out on a chance to play in the BCS National Championship Game.

Despite the lackluster effort last season, people are expecting this team to make a huge turnaround in 2014 coming up for a number of reasons.

For starters, part of what had them so down last season were the injuries the team had to deal with to some key players, including starting quarterback Jeff Driskel, who will be back this year.

Also, when Driskel does take the field next weekend, he’ll be under the tutelage of new offensive coordinator Kurt Roper, whom the team hired away from Duke this offseason. Roper will be instilling a new, spread system with the Gators that will play to the strengths of Driskel.

So should everything come together beginning this year, then Foley won’t be wrong about Muschamp having a lengthy stay in Gainesville.
