ESPN's Chris Low discusses Florida's top 3 options if Scott Frost goes to Nebraska
The Florida Gators have already watched their No. 1 choice for their open coaching position — Chip Kelly — choose UCLA instead.
Now, there are reports circulating that No. 2 choice Scott Frost, the current UCF coach, has already agreed to become the next head coach at Nebraska, his alma mater.
So, if that’s true, where would that leave the Gators? ESPN reporter Chris Low joined SportsCenter on Sunday morning to weigh in on the Florida search.
Low said there are three candidates that he believes the Gators are looking into at the moment — USF’s Charlie Strong, Oregon’s Willie Taggart and Mississippi State’s Dan Mullen.
Low also said that Mullen was a top candidate for the open Tennessee job, so it’ll be interesting to see if the Gators lose yet another option to a different school.
For now, though, the search is still on to replace Jim McElwain. It’s an important hire that the Gators need to get right if they want to get back to competing for national titles.
