Sunday, Florida officially announcedthat head coach Will Muschamp would be stepping down at the end of the season, but will coach the team's final two scheduled games. Monday, we're already hearing from one casino regarding potential replacements.
Bovada has released a set of 10 names that you can bet on. All but one - former Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan - are current college football head coaches elsewhere. The List:
Oklahoma State's Mike Gundy: 4/1
Colorado State's Jim McElwain: 9/2
Oklahoma's Bob Stoops: 11/2
Mississippi State's Dan Mullen: 11/2
Mike Shanahan: 7/1
Arizona's Rich Rodriguez: 7/1
South Carolina's Steve Spurrier: 8/1
Ole Miss' Hugh Freeze: 9/1
TCU's Gary Patterson: 12/1
Auburn's Gus Malzahn: 12/1
Oddly enough, we've already got some updates on a few of the candidates. Stoops told reporters today that he's not interested. Spurrier did the same yesterday. And ESPN's Brett McMurphy said Monday that Florida doesn't have either Mullen or Rodriguez on its list.
Gundy is an interesting frontrunner, given his lack of ties to the SEC. We'll see how it all plays out.
