Robert Griffin III getting criticized for Florida-FSU broadcast over Gators head coaching candidates
Robert Griffin III is not popular with fans watching the Florida-Florida State game.
The former Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback from Baylor is on the call for ESPN in Gainesville. The broadcast crew brought up Florida’s head coaching vacancy. Griffin maintained that Florida should hire Tim Tebow, an opinion he shared in a Friday appearance on “The Paul Finebaum Show.”
Griffin also brought up former Florida wide receiver Ike Hilliard and former Florida State cornerback Deion Sanders as possible Gators coaches.
Fans did not enjoy RG3’s takes. Here’s a sample of what was said on Twitter:
Someone should really check RG3 into a mental hospital.

My lesson from the Florida broadcast team is never let RG3 run a coaching search
— David Breed (@Breedless) November 27, 2021
Please take RG3’s advice and hire Tim Tebow @UF hahahahahaha

Florida should hire Tebow or Ike Hilliard as HC according to RG3.
He thinks this is HS.
