Florida has its new coach in Dan Mullen. But how about the Gators’ last head coach? Where is Jim McElwain going to end up?
According to John Canzano of The Oregonian, McElwain is on Oregon State’s radar and people in the former Florida coach’s camp have been in contact with Beavers athletic director Scott Barnes. Canzano added that McElwain is interested in Oregon State.

Not sure how serious the consideration is but Barnes and McElwain share Eastern Washington connection.
