GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Will Muschamp spent part of his childhood in Gainesville, growing up just a few streets from Florida Field and cheering for the Gators.
He left in the mid-80s, then returned as a player at Georgia and as an assistant coach with Auburn and LSU.
He's back again — this time in a much different capacity.
Muschamp, who agreed to a five-year contract worth $13.5 million to replace Urban Meyer, was formally introduced as Florida's new coach Tuesday. He took center stage for a 40-minute news conference filled with confidence, enthusiasm and witty one-liners.
Muschamp says he plans to hire his staff after the Outback Bowl and intends to install a pro-style offense, welcome news for Florida fans who groaned about the spread all season.
