Florida has its defensive coordinator

New Florida coach Dan Mullen continued to make moves on Wednesday. The biggest of them was reportedly bringing defensive coordinator Todd Grantham from Mississippi State to Gainesville.

Making Florida football fun again

Mullen knows what it’s like to see Florida football have a successful offense. In fact, he was the last Gators offensive coordinator to have sustained success. He plans to return Florida to its glory days.

“That’s the challenge for me. I love challenges. I absolutely love it,” Mullen said. “And I have as high of expectations as anybody in this room for what this program is going to be like. You know, when people ask for timetables: I have high expectations for next season, I do.”
