With Dan Mullen out and Louisiana head coach Billy Napier on his way in, the dust at Florida has yet to settle when it comes to the program's roster. Among the players that Gators fans are keeping close tabs on is quarterback Anthony Richardson.

After a latest message from the redshirt freshman, the Florida faithful shouldn't have to stress any longer about his commitment to the program.

Richard already committed to the Gators for the future before he learned that Napier would be succeeding Mullen. However, if that wasn't enough to convince Florida fans, his latest tweet essentially confirms that he'll be back in Gainesville next season.

That's because he shared

Scared Money, Don’t Make Money! 🐊

— Anthony Richardson † (@GVOaant) November 30, 2021

">a notable quote on Twitter on Tuesday. Take a look:

"Scared money don't make money" is an intriguing message for Richardson to tweet out because it's something that Billy Napier said during one of Louisiana's more memorable moments in 2021.

Back on Sept. 16, the Ragin’ Cajuns had a 7-point lead late in the first half in a home matchup against Ohio. They had the ball at the Bobcats’ 1-yard line, and instead of kicking a field goal, Napier opted to go for it. Louisiana was successful and took a 21-7 lead into halftime before ultimately winning the game 49-14.

During a brief halftime interview, Napier spoke about why he chose to go for it from the 1-yard line rather than kick a field goal.

The connection between Richardson's tweet and Napier's message can't just be coincidence, so it looks like the young quarterback will be back at Florida in 2022.

That can only be good news for the Gators. As a redshirt freshman, Richardson didn't play much this season as the backup to Emory Jones, but many thought that he could grow to be Florida's quarterback of the future.

If he does in fact stay in Gainesville, Richardson seems poised to be the Gators first starter under Napier next year.
