Florida AD: Muschamp will remain coach

The SportsXchange

Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley said before Saturday's game against rival Florida State that coach Will Muschamp will be back next year, though other changes will be made.

The Gators were 4-7 heading into Saturday's game, including six straight losses. Florida did not score more than 20 points during the skid and scored a season-high 31 points on Sept. 21 against Tennessee.

"Obviously it's been a difficult year," Foley said. "We haven't made an excuse all year, and we're not going to make them now. We know what this program is all about. I have total confidence in Coach Muschamp and have made that clear. We've got to fix some things. When you have seasons like this, that's what you do -- you evaluate, you analyze and you fix things. You don't panic."

The offense has been a major concern. Florida ranked last in the SEC in scoring at 19.9 points a game going into Saturday.

"I don't think it's any secret, and Will will tell you, we've got to fix that side of the ball," Foley said. "I'm not being disrespectful to anybody, but you look at some of the games we've lost, we haven't scored many points. This year or last year or what have you, that has to get fixed. And that's going to be Will's responsibility as the head football coach. I'll help him, support him, advise him, whatever have you. I will tell you if you ask him today, it's his biggest concern. We've got to fix that side of the ball."

CBS Sports reported in recent weeks that offensive coordinator Brent Pease and offensive line coach Tim Davis will lose their jobs at the end of the season but Foley did not specify what changes would be made to the coaching staff.
