Report: Will Muschamp To Be Named Next Florida Head Coach

Today was supposed to be a quiet day in college football. The Army-Navy game was the only FBS game scheduled. The Heisman Trophy presentation seemed like merely a way to delay Cam Newton holding up a bronze figurine. Then, seconds before that show began on ESPN, this bombshell dropped:

Will Muschamp will be named UF's new coach, sources have told the Times-Union. He's the D coordinate at Texas.

That's from Michael DiRocco of the Florida Times-Union, breaking news that Florida will hire Muschamp, Texas' defensive coordinator, to replace the recently resigned Urban Meyer.

It's a shock, to be sure — recent speculation centered on Bob Stoops, and it had been presumed that Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley would tab a candidate with head coaching experience to replace Meyer — but Muschamp has been a highly regarded coordinator for many years and was expected to be a head coach at some point.

It appears that that point is now.
