Florida Gators coach Will Muschamp will attend Gator Gathering in Tampa



The Tampa Gator Club has announced that Florida coach Will Muschamp will attend a Gator Gathering hosted by the club on Thursday, May, 12.

It is one of only 10 Gator Gatherings that Muschamp will attend.

When Florida coach Urban Meyer was hired in 2005, he made appearances at 22 Gator Gatherings that first season. But the massive number of public speaking events took a toll, and he later requested a reduction, and he began speaking at 10 of the statewide gatherings of boosters and fans to raise money for scholarships. 

Last season, offensive coordinator Steve Addazio took Meyer's place at the events. Because Muschamp is in his first season and has not made many public appearances since his hiring in December, expect the 10 Gator Gatherings he will attend to be largely attended.
