Muschamp Ready to Take State of Florida by Storm

by Scott Carter, Senior Writer

The private plane was high in the dark sky shortly after taking off from Lakeland’s Linder Regional Airport on Wednesday night.

First-year Florida football coach Will Muschamp grabbed a bottle of water and a multi-grain bar to munch on during the 35-minute flight back to Gainesville. Muschamp stretched his legs out, looked at the plane’s other two passengers, and provided a quick analysis of his first Gator Gathering.

“I thought it went well,’’ he said matter-of-factly. “It was a good crowd.’’

Since replacing Urban Meyer in mid-December, Muschamp has crossed many “firsts’’ off the list in his first time as a head coach.

He hired his first coaching staff. He signed his first recruiting class. He made his first public appearance in The Swamp earlier this month in the Orange and Blue Debut.
