Florida exercises one-year option on Will Muschamp's contract
Despite his 7-5 first season with the Gators, The University Athletic Association has exercised its right to a one-year contract extension for Flroida head football coach Will Muschamp.
Muschamp, who was hired in December 2010, originally signed a five-year contract worth approximatley $13.75 million.
"Coach Muschamp's original contract was for five years with an option year,'' UF Associate Athletic Director for Communications Steve McClain said. "The UAA exercised that option year in January, and he now has five years remaining on his current contract.''
The Gators finished 7-6, 3-5 in the SEC in Muschamp's first season.
