Will Muschamp has been one of the hottest names amongst assistant football coaches in college football for years.

He was hired at Texas before the 2008 season and 11 games later, the Longhorns administration announced a huge salary boost and made him Mack Brown’s successor-in-waiting.

Coach Brown endorsed the deal but said all along that he was not going to retire anytime soon. Several college football experts, media and fans wondered if Muschamp would stay at Texas waiting for the opportunity to take over the program.

Well, the wait ended this past weekend when the defensive coordinator left the Longhorns to succeed the retired Urban Meyer as head coach of the Florida Gators.

The 39-year-old Muschamp, who spent three seasons at Texas, lived 10 years in Gainesville, Florida as a child and says it was a dream come true to lead the program.

Muschamp graduated from Georgia and coached at Auburn and LSU and knows the SEC and recruiting in Florida.

Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley said that Muschamp was the coach they wanted and met with no one else.
