The Florida Gators won’t be in search of a new head coach this offseason, as the Orlando Sentinel is reporting that they will fire their embattled-coach, Will Muschamp, despite a 4-7 record and a loss to FCS-foe Georgia Southern this past Saturday.
The University of Florida has no plans to fire Will Muschamp, even after a monumental loss to Georgia Southern, a source close to the program told the Sentinel on Sunday.
However, significant changes to Muschamp’s coaching staff are expected after Saturday’s season finale against Florida State.
After Saturday’s loss, Muschamp called his team’s offensive ineptitude “infectious” and seemed to distance himself from offensive coordinator Brent Pease (read more here).
“You’ve got to change the scoreboard offensively,” Muschamp said. “You’ve got to be able to change the scoreboard, and we just struggled scoring points offensively. It’s been a week-in, week-out occurrence.”
This Saturday’s loss to GSU was the first non-Division I school to beat Florida in football.
