No Pease In Gainesville, Florida Fires Offensive Coordinator

You knew if Will Muschamp"s head wasn't going to roll following Florida's first losing season since 1979 someones would.

Sunday Brent Pease was called into the office for the bad news.

Pease has been fired as Florida's offensive coordinator first reported by the Associated Press.

Peace came to Florida in 2012 after a successful six years as Boise State's offensive coordinator.  

Gator offensive line coach Tim Davis was let go too.

"I have a lot of respect for Coach Pease and Coach Davis,'' Muschamp said. "They are both
good football coaches and even better people. There have been a lot of unfortunate
circumstances this year, but that is part of the game sometimes. I want to thank each of them for their contributions to the program both on and off the field."

"I am grateful for the opportunity to come to the University of Florida and work with a bunch of great coaches, administrative staff and players,'' Pease said. "I know we came up short of our ultimate goal, but I will carry on knowing I gained valuable friendships and relationships during my time here."

You knew it was coming, Florida's offense has been just awful this year ranking 112th in the NCAA in total offense.  

When you lose you top two quarterbacks, three offensive tackles and your starting tailback to injury you are going to be weakened offensively.

Somebody had to write a big check to buy Pease out who still had two years remaining on his contract and is owed $1,18 million.  Pease was to receive a longevity bonus of $100,000 on January 31st.
