GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Given his background as a defensive
coach and relentless recruiter, Will Muschamp's most important hire
at Florida will be on the other side of the ball.
It's the position Florida fans have been grumbling about all
There's little chance Muschamp retains offensive coordinator
Steve Addazio, whose unit ranks 79th in the nation in total offense
and has received constant criticism all season.
The problems are evident.
Quarterback John Brantley is a misfit in the spread offense, and
the Gators have been plagued by turnovers, dropped passes, sacks,
missed field goals and poor execution in the red zone. All the
issues resulted in some of the program's worst offensive
performances since before Steve Spurrier took over in 1990.
