And now it is official: Will Muschamp will not be the head-coach-in-waiting at Texas. That's because he will be an actual head coach at Florida. The school just made the announcement on its website, so no need for non-denial denials and the like.
From the press release:
"This is a dream come true to be the head coach of the Florida Gators," said Muschamp, who lived in Gainesville for 10 years growing up. "I grew up watching the Gators and whatever other SEC team was on television.
"I have great memories watching SEC football with my father on Saturdays and playing football in the back yard with my two brothers right here in Gainesville."
Lots to talk about in the days ahead, but keep this in mind: Muschamp is a Georgia alum. The World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party just got a lot more interesting, in 2011 and beyond.
