Reports: Florida Gators To Hire Texas Defensive Coordinator Will Muschamp
Muschamp was suppose to succeed Mack Brown at Texas, but you have to strike while the iron is hot and Florida is a prime job— so according to reports, he is on his way to Gainesville.
A person familiar with the decision says Texas defensive coordinator Will Muschamp has accepted an offer to be the head coach at Florida.
Muschamp, who just finished his third season at Texas, where he was the head-coach-in-waiting to succeed Mack Brown, replaces Urban Meyer at Florida.
Muschamp has been highly regarded for years. It will be curious to see if he continues with the Urban Meyer spread offense or go more traditional.
Either way, Florida has moved on from the Urban Meyer era.
