Will Muschamp Report Card: How Did New Florida Coach Do in His Debut?

The Gators chomped FAU 41-3 at The Swamp on Saturday with some tremendous production from Chris Rainey and Jeff Demps. 

But, how did Will Muschamp do in his first game as Florida's head coach? 

Charlie Weis' pro-style offense under Jeff Brantley moved down the field with ease picking up first downs on almost every play. Muschamp patrolled the sidelines giving encouragement and walking through reads with his players. 

After a successful playing career at safety for Georgia and assistant coaching stints at Auburn, LSU, Texas and with the Miami Dolphins, Muschamp set a goal to become a head coach by age 40.  He recently hit his 40-year mark and with it took over as head coach for the Gators when Urban Meyer retired.

Even with the success on both sides of the ball in the first game, Coach Muschamp looked nervous and paced the sideline with sweat on his brow.  Hopefully the success of his players in their opener will put him at ease in the next game.
