Former Florida head coach Steve Spurrier has liked what he’s seen from Billy Napier down in Gainesville so far.
Napier took over the program late last year after Dan Mullen was fired last November. Napier came over from the University of Louisana where he was 40-12 in four years as the head coach.
Spurrier went on On3’s Gators Online Podcast and discussed how the players seem more accountable and disciplined under Napier than they were under Mullen.
“I don’t think it’s my position to look over Billy’s shoulder and watching him coach, stuff like that,” Spurrier said. “But I’ve been to a few practices and I just think attitudes matter. I think guys are more accountable, discipline, effort attitude, you know, that seems like last year that slipped, and I don’t blame [Dan] Mullen so much, but you know, the assistant coaches are also responsible for the players but also the head coach is responsible for everything, so he’s slightly to blame.”
Florida will try and get back to being a national contender under Napier, which is something that didn’t happen under Mullen.
Mullen ended his tenure at Florida with a 34-15 overall record.
The Gators will kick their 2022 season off against the Utah Utes on Sept. 3.
