Billy Napier weighs in on LSU rumors that circulated prior to him taking Florida job
If there’s any one thing in college football that is continuously rolling, it’s the rumor mill — especially when it comes to the coaching carousel.
There have been some rumors that have made their rounds about currently Florida Gators head coach Billy Napier in regards to who he was being considered by and connected to on his way out of the University of Louisiana – Lafayette.
One of the schools he was asked about his connection to this week was LSU, where former Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly ultimately landed. Napier didn’t provide much clarity when asked about the rumors that had connected him to the school before he came to Gainesville.
“I don’t know if that’s something you talk about publicly … I will say I’m very fortunate to be in this situation,” Napier told reporters. “This path was right.”
Napier and his Gators currently sit at an overall record of 4-2 and will face LSU next on the schedule as the Tigers travel to The Swamp.
