Mullen finishes his tenure with a 34-15 record, but his team won just two of their last eleven against Power-5 teams.
The Gators season has been on a downward trend since nearly upsetting then No. 1 Alabama. The losses mounted and the frustration of the fan base grew. Eventually, it became too much.
Mullen took heat for his team not standing with the band for the traditional playing of the Alma Mater after losses in Jacksonville and at South Carolina.
Mullen has done himself no favors on the recruiting trail, either. The Gators currently have the nation’s No. 23 ranked recruiting class, which is good for ninth in the Southeastern Conference. Florida has thirteen prospects committed in this year’s class.
Reports indicate that staff and administration is meeting with the team Sunday afternoon.
More to come.
