Dan Mullen era over? Florida fans floating a familiar name for potential Gators' HC opening
Dan Mullen is on the hottest of hot seats at Florida.
Urban Meyer, who won 2 national titles at Florida, is currently the head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars in the NFL.
But, things aren’t going well for the Jaguars in Year 1 under Meyer, prompting some speculation that he could decide to return to the college ranks in 2022.
Where would he end up? How about a place where he’s already a legend? A place like, oh, let’s say … Florida?
That’s what many Gator fans want, it seems. After falling to 5-6 on the season following a loss at Mizzou on Saturday, many Florida fans want Meyer to come home to Gainesville.
Here’s some of the reaction on Twitter:
Urban Meyer Florida coach 2022

So… Urban Meyer is in Jacksonville. What are the odds Scott Stricklin is giving him a call this weekend? (Not saying I want this, just being real)

Obviously, Meyer returning to Florida is highly unlikely. But, you can’t stop fans from dreaming, right?
