The suspensions of 9 Florida players before the season for credit card fraud have now spanned two head coaches.
The world will never know what Jim McElwain’s plans would have been if the players would have been allowed to return to the field earlier than expected, but Florida athletic director Scott Stricklin wants to help Dan Mullen make the eventual decision according to Thomas Goldkamp of 247Sports.
“I’ll be a part of the conversation,” Stricklin said Monday. “They have the judicial thing going through on campus. I’ll be a part of that conversation. Dan (Mullen), it’s kind of been dropped in his lap. We’ll work well together on this.”
Players such as Jordan Scarlett and Antonio Callaway got the intervention and therefore could have the charges dropped if they meet all of the state attorney’s requirements. This might allow their return next season, but it remains to be seen if Mullen even wants them or any of the other 7 players back in uniform.
Now it’s clear Stricklin will play a role in that decision as well.
