Gators extended Will Muschamp's contract in August

Al Messerschmidt

The Florida head coach is now under contract through the 2017 season.

Less than six months after Will Muschamp received a one-year extension to his contract, the Florida Gators head coach received another one-year extension in August, according to a report from Hays Carlson of the Florida Times-Union. With the two extensions, Muschamp is now under contract through the 2017 season and will be compensated with roughly $2.8 million per year.

In his first season with the Gators, Muschamp led the team to a 7-6 record with a victory in the Gator Bowl against the Ohio State Buckeyes. In 2012, the Gators are 11-1 and will likely be selected to the Sugar Bowl as the representatives of the SEC.

In Urban Meyer's last season with Florida, the team finished 8-5 with a win against Penn State in the Outback Bowl. The 2009 Sugar Bowl was the last BCS Bowl for the Gators. Prior to joining Florida, Muschamp was the defensive coordinator for Auburn and Texas.
