Will Muschamp is stepping down after the close of the regular season. Mullen anyone?11/16/2014 at 1:07 PM #61601GreywolfParticipant
With a “quality win” over Eastern Kentucky (or FSU) they will be bowl eligible. 😉 In another post I commented about context being decisive. In the context of Florida’s football history and their being in the SEC a 6-6 season is NOT acceptable and it’s appropriate for Muschamp to step down. For Florida to decline a bowl in their situation might even be appropriate.11/16/2014 at 1:11 PM #61602
Anything but a conference championship there is unacceptable. Forget bowl games. He’ll make a fine D coordinator but he could not get the offense figured out.11/16/2014 at 3:34 PM #61612bill.onthebeachParticipant
.. if true… that’s worth 7pts against the Noles on November 29th..
but a win probably won’t reverse the course of events…
To add to what’s stated above by Grey and Wuf…
the context in Gainesville… is this… if you think they GOTT a$$holes with unrealistic expectations of glory and success in Chapel Hill… just head on down to Gainesville and see for yourself… GatorHoles make the folks in Chapel Hill look like choir boys..#NCSU-North Carolina's #1 FOOTBALL school!11/16/2014 at 7:55 PM #61639LRMKeymaster
Think about this: five years ago he was the coach-in-waiting at Texas.11/16/2014 at 8:19 PM #61643
Foley extended Muschamp’s contract twice and gave him a raise. Because of those shows of good faith, Florida owes Muschamp more than $6 million for the final three years left on his deal.
Paying off the rest of the coaching staff could cost about another $2 million.11/18/2014 at 11:25 AM #61808StateFansKeymaster
Could Muschamp land a head coaching job somewhere else?11/18/2014 at 2:07 PM #61824JackWolfKeymaster
We should throw the bank at that guy, even if it was just for a season or 2.11/18/2014 at 2:37 PM #61827WolfanaticParticipant
Not to nitpick, but saying that Muschamp is stepping down is a bit ambiguous, and infers that he made a decision to do so. AD Foley fired Muschamp on Sunday morning after the loss to The University of Stupid Chickens on Saturday. Will agreed to coach the final two regular season games, but not the bowl game, which ends up being a shame because I have seen some bowl projections that had State playing Florida in the Duck Commander Independence Bowl in Shreveport. I wonder how JB would feel about a Pack-Gator match-up, with or without Muschamp.
Maybe Foley should look in the mirror. Yeah, I know, he hired Urban Meyer, but Urban had previous head coaching experience. However, his other two hires, Ron Zook and Muschamp had no head coaching experience, and UF paid the price for those faux pas.12/13/2014 at 5:56 AM #65208
And he lands firmly on his feet as Aubie’s D Coordinator. Monster contract. Interestingly interviewed at Houston for the head job. Flirted with TAMU and South Carolina as well.12/13/2014 at 7:21 AM #65209Pack92Participant
I don’t blame him for not wanting/getting Houston. That school is 3rd tier in TX for football. A&M would have been a totally different story.
Auburn is going to be VERY scary next year with him as DC. The man simply produces outstanding defenses period. Couple that to a Malzahn point-producing offense and it could get ugly…for the opposing teams.12/13/2014 at 7:26 AM #65210
I agree 92. Huge win for Aubie. And I would think if Gus gets an NFL gig in the next few years the Tigers just may have their man in house.12/13/2014 at 12:50 PM #65212TexpackParticipant
I was glad he chose Auburn. I’ll go to 2-3 UH games a year for the next three years while the youngest kid is going there. I certainly didn’t want to watch his coaching brilliance.
