Florida's next offensive coordinator

While Brent Pease is off to get his shinny new head coaching job like Weis and Adazio did, Muschamp is out looking for an offensive coordinator. He's got his work cut out for him.

Think about it:
  • The job has been a revolving door under Muschamp.
  • Unless you come in and make marked statistical improvements, your boss and the rest of the staff will likely be gone after one year. That is even with 'turnaround' year of 7-9 wins in 2014.
  • You will likely be using wide receivers by committee. Your best two running backs can't stay healthy. Your best offensive weapon will be playing on Sundays next season. 
  • Unless you can bring an 'exciting' philosophy with you (read: plenty of flash and pizzazz), the fan base isn't going to like you.
  • Despite all the aforementioned reasons, the fan base isn't likely to like you anyway unless you are currently coaching in a conference championship game because that is how they are.
Kind of limits your list doesn't it?

Except there is one guy that fits in ok. He isn't going to win the minds of Florida fans with his name, but he could win the press conference. He's currently the OC for a team with a dynamic offense. His name is synonymous with throwing the ball. He's recruited the Southeastern Conference, and Florida specifically. He has great hair.

Hal Mumme. 

He's been around. He's not afraid of a one year stint, based on his subscription to the Brian Van Gorder career management newsletter. He's utterly confident in his offensive prowess. His offenses are the opposite of what Florida has seen the past two seasons. 

Just a hunch, but don't be surprised if it happens.
