HOOVER, Ala. (AP) - Florida coach Will Muschamp is confident he has the remedy for questions about his job security: Winning a lot of football games.
These are strange times for the Gators, who are coming off their first losing season since 1979. Nearly everything went wrong in last year's 4-8 disaster, but Muschamp was upbeat during his Monday address at SEC Media Days, saying he's got the talent for a quick turnaround.
The return of quarterback Jeff Driskel should help. The 6-foot-4, 230-pound junior played just three games last season because of a season-ending leg fracture. Muschamp also hired offensive coordinator Kurt Roper from Duke to revamp a unit that scored 18.8 points per game - last in the SEC.
Florida returns seven starters on both the offensive and defensive sides.
