AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Texas defensive coordinator Will Muschamp
is leaving the Longhorns to be the head coach at Florida.
Muschamp succeeds Urban Meyer, who won two national
championships in six seasons with the Gators but resigned Wednesday
after a 7-5 season.
The 39-year-old Muschamp spent three seasons at Texas, where he
was the head-coach-in-waiting to succeed Mack Brown.
Muschamp, who once lived in Gainesville as a child, says taking
over the Florida program is a "dream come true."
Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley says in a statement that
Muschamp is the "only person we met with and the only person we
offered the job to."
