GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Will Muschamp spent part of his
childhood in Gainesville, growing up just a few streets from
Florida Field and cheering for the Gators.
He left in the mid-80s, then returned as a player at Georgia and
as an assistant coach with Auburn and LSU.
He's back again - this time in a much different capacity.
Muschamp, who agreed to a five-year contract worth $13.5 million
to replace Urban Meyer, was formally introduced as Florida's new
coach Tuesday. He took center stage for a 40-minute news conference
filled with confidence, enthusiasm and witty one-liners.
Muschamp says he plans to hire his staff after the Outback Bowl
and intends to install a pro-style offense, welcome news for
Florida fans who groaned about the spread all season.
