Will Muschamp reportedly will be back as Florida coach, but changes are expected

Will MuschampWill Muschamp will be back as head coach of the Florida Gators next season despite his team’s struggles this year, according to a report.

The Orlando Sentinel says Florida has no plans to fire Muschamp even though the Gators have lost six in a row and are now 4-7. However, the Sentinel says changes to the coaching staff are to be expected.

Florida lost to Georgia Southern 26-20 on Saturday, which marked the first time the Gators lost to a non-Division I opponent. The only bright side — sort of — is that the smallest crowd of the Muschamp era was there to witness it. Georgia Southern beat Florida without completing a pass.

This report shouldn’t come as much of a surprise; Florida went 11-2 last year in Muschamp’s first season. Firing him after this season would seem too hasty. Plus, athletic director Jeremy Foley recently gave Muschamp that huge dreaded vote of confidence. Now if the Gators don’t show improvement next year, you can bet they’ll be looking for a new coach.
