Will Muschamp out at Florida
Florida head coach Will Muschamp will step down at the end of the 2014 season.
According to various reports including Sports Illustrated’s Andy Staples, the hammer’s come down in Gainesville on the heels of Saturday’s loss to South Carolina after the Gators had a field goal and punt blocked in the fourth quarter nursing a 7-point lead.
“Very disappointed to lose that football game,” Muschamp said. “Our guys fought and played hard and put ourselves in position to get it done … and didn’t get it done.”
