GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) – A person close to the situation says Will Muschamp is stepping down as Florida’s coach, a day after a head-scratching meltdown against struggling South Carolina.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the school has not made the announcement official.
Muschamp will coach the last two games of the regular season against Eastern Kentucky and Florida State.
The decision came Sunday, less than 24 hours after the 23-20 loss in overtime, and ends Muschamp’s four-year tenure that will be remembered for inept offense, conservative play-calling and nearly as many losses as wins in Southeastern Conference play.
The overtime loss to South Carolina was Florida’s sixth defeat in its last eight games in Gainesville.
