">@CoachWMuschamp, since he was hired by the Gators in 2010. He's had some issues recently, though. He's, on multiple occasions, accidentally tweeted out what was intended to be a direct message to a recruit. 

Appearing on 740 AM's "Open Mike" radio show with Mike Bianchi Thursday morning, Muschamp detailed his Twitter process.

From the show:

“I actually did not [send my own tweets] before, but when I had to go on summer vacation, I realized it was going to be a little bit of a hassle to send a message to someone for them to put out. I’ve had to learn on the run here in the last month,” Muschamp explained. 

He's since been getting help. 

“I found good help at home with my 12-year-old and 9-year-old; they helped me out with some of this Twitter stuff,” Muschamp said.

“Actually what happened is, when I get a message, it used to go through my email or text. So I responded, not realizing it wasn’t just a direct message, but it went through my account out to everyone. Thank goodness I didn’t put any names on it so there’s no NCAA issues.”

Muschamp may be having problems with social media, but he'll need to correct some of the issues Florida's had on the field if he wants to remain in Gainesville. A nine-or-10 win season might be needed for the Gators in 2014.
