GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — This is Florida's most important spring in coach Will Muschamp's tenure.
Coming off their first losing season since 1979, the Gators have a new offensive coordinator, a new offensive line coach and plenty of room for improvement after finishing 113th in the nation in total offense.
So all eyes will be on that side of the ball when Florida takes the field Wednesday for the first of 15 spring practices.
Muschamp says his team "lost belief and confidence in what we were doing" last season.
Muschamp fired two assistants, and then hired Kurt Roper as offensive coordinator and Mike Summers as line coach.
Quarterback Jeff Driskel, who missed most of last season after breaking his leg, will be the centerpiece of the retooled offense.
