Florida coach Will Muschamp is getting at least another game to turn things around. Athletic director Jeremy Foley said Monday that he will continue to evaluate the season and likely Muschamp’s future as it plays out. That means Muschamp will be on the sideline when the Gators (3-3, 2-3 Southeastern Conference) play ninth-ranked Georgia in Jacksonville on Nov. 1.
Foley released a 40-word statement that did little to sway belief that Muschamp’s job is in serious jeopardy following consecutive home losses to teams that previously struggled in SEC play.
”At the beginning of the season we said we would evaluate the season as it plays out,” Foley said. ”We will continue to do so. Our sole focus right now is supporting our coaching staff and players as they prepare for Georgia.”
The Gators are coming off back-to-back losses to LSU and Missouri. The latest one, a 42-13 debacle to Mizzou on Saturday night, was one of the most embarrassing losses in Muschamp’s three-plus years in Gainesville.
