Florida coaching candidates emerge to replace Dan Mullen
Florida is now looking for a replacement for Dan Mullen after the head coach was fired on Sunday following the loss to Missouri.
Florida fell to 5-6 and 2-6 in the SEC. Mullen was 34-15 in 4 years at Florida, but Gators were 2-9 in last 11 games vs. Power 5 opponents.
The candidates to replace Mullen, according to Dennis Dodd of CBS Sports, are well-known names who have been mentioned by other vacancies. They are Bob Stoops, Fox analyst, and former Oklahoma coach, Lane Kiffin, Ole Miss coach, Billy Napier, Louisiana coach, Dave Clawson, Wake Forest coach, Dave Aranda, Baylor coach, Luke Fickell, Cincinnati coach, Matt Campbell, Iowa State coach, Mark Stoops, Kentucky coach, Mike Elko, Texas A&M defensive coordinator, and Jeff Hafley, Boston College coach.
Dodd wrote that since the Gators were ranked in the top 10 less than two months ago, Mullen’s fall from grace is unprecedented. Florida looked like the team that had cracked the code on Alabama. Now, there is a major overhaul to be done.
