Despite being focused on making sure the Auburn Tigers and their defense live up to expectations during the 2015 season, Will Muschamp is still answering questions about his tenure as the head coach of the Florida Gators.
Muschamp spent four years in Gainesville and had some big wins to put on his resume, but a 11-13 record the last two seasons (including the first losing season in over three decades) sealed his fate.
In an interview with CBS Sports, Muschamp says he has no beef with his now former employer:
“I have zero bitterness,” Muschamp told CBS Sports on Monday. “I have nothing but great memories of the University of Florida, of Gainesville. People look at me like I’m nuts, but I do. I wish we’d have won more games, [but] we changed the culture of that program.”
“[We] changed the culture of the program that was labeled by the previous head coach as ‘broken,’” Muschamp said, referring to the icon he replaced, Urban Meyer. “He said it, I didn’t.”
Remember, Meyer turned in his former program to the NCAA for violations when he took the job at Ohio State. Needless to say, there won’t be many Christmas cards shared between the two coaches.
