Florida coaching rumors: Gators insider says 'all signs point toward' 1 new coach
Florida is searching for a new coach after firing Dan Mullen over the weekend.
The search could already be zeroing in on 1 particular candidate, though, according to Florida insider Pat Dooley.
On “The Frank Frangie Show” on Wednesday, Dooley said all signs point toward Louisiana coach Billy Napier being the next head coach of the Gators:

“I don’t think there is much doubt that it’s Billy Napier,” Dooley said. “All signs point toward that. I would expect he’ll be announced Sunday or Monday.”
The timeline for that announcement is interesting. Could the Gators really have a new head coach in place by this time next week? Things are getting interesting in Gainesville.
