After the December 8th resigning of coach Urban Meyer, the Gators wondered who would be his successor.
In came Texas defensive coordinator Will Muschamp.
Muschamp came into the organization with plans to get Florida back to the top—where people are used to seeing them.
He decided that he would switch to a 3-4 defense; then he decided that not only the defense needed to be changed, but he also decided to switch to a Pro Style offense.
Lastly, his biggest decision was to bring former Notre Dame head coach Charlie Weis in as offensive coordinator to perfect the Pro Style offense.
A very fiery guy, Will Muschamp needs to make sure that he doesn't doubt his decisions. If he starts doubting himself, he will never become as good as Urban Meyer was at Florida.
He also has to realize that after last season, many people have a short leash for QB John Brantley. And if he's not playing up to par, Muschamp has to be willing to pull the plug on him.
However, if Muschamp comes in and has the same fire as he had at Texas, there is no doubt in my mind that the Gators could be playing for the SEC championship.
