Notebook: Staff member resigns

GAINESVILLE -- In the midst of a tumultuous year, Florida coach Will Muschamp is dealing with midseason staff turnover as well. 

Jon Haskins, UF’s director of player personnel since January 2012, resigned 10 days ago, according to Muschamp.

“We have an opening right now,” Muschamp said. “But I’m busy coaching the team. I don’t have a while lot of time [to worry about filling it immediately.]”

Florida has no timetable hiring a replacement for Haskins, whose primary responsibilities included coordinating official visits and other administrative recruiting duties. 

Muschamp said the vacancy would have no impact on UF’s prospective recruiting efforts the rest of the season.

“We’ll be fine. He was in an administrative role. You can’t evaluate tape and those sorts of things,” Muschamp said.


CBS elected to use its six-day window for several Nov. 16 games, including Florida at South Carolina. The network will wait until after this weekend to decide between Georgia-Auburn or the Gators and Gamecocks for the premier 3:30 p.m. slot. The Gators could also play at either 7 p.m. (ESPN2) or 7:45 p.m. (ESPN).


“This one's more difficult for me because I'm a senior and 2011 I was a sophomore," safety Jaylen Watkins said. "And to come off an 11-2 season last season, we went to a Sugar Bowl and we were winning, and then you come back this year and you're not winning as much as you were. It's definitely tougher for me, and as a team in general, because everyone comes here to win."

-- Safety Jaylen Watkins on this season compared to 2011 when the Gators were 6-6 in the regular season.


While battered and bruised for much of the season, Florida exited the Georgia game totally healthy, Muschamp said.

Only left tackle D.J. Humphries (MCL sprain) -- who did not play against the Bulldogs after spraining his knee in practice last week -- will miss Saturday’s game against the Commodores.

Should've been pease.....should have been pease....

The wheels have come off the garbage truck.

Couldn't have happened to a more disgusting, yet deserving, fan base.

Jlo will say all we need is a kicker to right the ship. Like the Captain of the Titanic who said all we need a little bubble gum to patch the hole.

Turds goin' down. Turds goin' down. Will be down for a loooooooooooooong time.

The Commode Beatdown looms.

Word of the muschamp era


Question....can U even get back in the top 25 with four loses ( to date)?

Lol...last season was a fluke. The media knew it, the country knew it, the onlyones that didnt know was ufelons!

Look on the bright side, Gatr Trash, next year is looking up. You have Driskel and Murphy, the two worst inside linebackers in the SEC coming back, losing Purifoy, Powell, Easley, and Watkins.

That should make you happy. Should also make every coach in the crappy SEC LEast happy too.


You mean exactly like this season has been for the canes? Except 1 big difference sid. We actually beat 4 ranked teams, 3 of which were in the top 10. Hardly the fluke that is this years canes, who have yet to beat a single decent team let alone a top 10 team. Those teams utterly destroy the canes. Just goes to show how delusional you are making a comment like that. Question……can you guys win an ACC championship for once in your lives??? Not this year!!!! You can definitely win a running your delusional mouths championship for sure. That's about all you got this year. Your 10th year in a row of accomplishing nothing. LOL!

Irrelevant its what the gators are year in and year out. Oh well gatoralum and Jls can always cheer sec, sec, sec.
