Texas DC Muschamp Accepts Gators Football Head Coaching Position
University of Florida Athletic Director Jeremy Foley apparently found his man. Texas Defensive Coordinator and coach-in-waiting Will Muschamp has accepted an offer to become the next head coach for the Florida Gators. Muschamp, a one time Gainesville native, was in line to succeed Longhorns coach Mack Brown. Instead, he will now follow in the footsteps of Urban Meyer as the next Florida football head coach.
"This is a dream cone true to be the head coach of the Florida Gators," said Muschamp, who spent 10 years of his childhood living on 27th Street in Gainesville. "I grew up watching the Gators and whatever other SEC team was on television... I'm eager to get to work and represent this great institution. I'm very thankful for the opportunity given to me by President Bernie Machen and Athletics Director Jeremy Foley. I promise to bring a tremendous amount of passion and energy to work every day and my goal is to have our team bring the same type of attitude in everything we do, both on and off the field. I want our team to play hard, with relentless effort and with toughness. We want to make The Gator Nation proud."
