Pete Thamel: Florida Will Hire 1 Of These 3 Coaches

The Gators' hire will come down to these three men, says one college football insider.

The list of head coaches being named as potential candidates for the Florida job is getting long.

Pete Thamel says it can be shorted to three names.

The college football insider for Yahoo! Sports says the Gators will end up hiring one of these three offensive-minded head coaches:

  • Chip Kelly
  • Dan Mullen
  • Scott Frost

Thamel admits that there are other candidates, but it'd be a surprise if it's not one of the three mentioned above.

Are there other candidates? Certainly. Virginia Tech’s Justin Fuente ($6 million) and Iowa State’s Matt Campbell ($9.4 million) appear prohibitive because of their buyouts. But it would be a surprise if the job didn’t go to Frost, Mullen or Kelly.

Who's your pick, Florida fans?
