The Florida Gators fired Dan Mullen a week ago, and it looks like they’ve landed their next head coach. According to Yahoo’s Pete Thamel, current Louisiana Lafayette head coach Billy Napier is expected to take over at Gainesville and head coach of the Gators.
Billy Napier had very little to offer that he would be the primary contender for the Florida Gators head coach post following Louisiana-Lafayette’s 21-16 win over Louisiana-Monroe on Saturday.
“No decision has been made yet,” Napier said in a Saturday evening press conference, asked about the rumor mill. “We’re still definitely evaluating everything, and I think the main thing here is that we focus on this team, this group and the work that remains to be done.
“You know, we’ll cross that bridge when we get there.”
According to reports surfacing on Sunday morning, it looks like they will be crossing this bridge very soon.
