    Being reported that McElwain and Florida admin is in talks negotiating a buyout. No details given and Florida denying but where there’s smoke there’s fire. Anyone got anything on this?!

    They reported it before the game. Probably why the team is distracted and getting railed. Winning the east isn't enough. Making up threats and shark fucking may be his ticket out.

    I was really beginning to enjoy his stay in the swamp. We should put up the funds to have him stay.

    Florida administrators discussing if they can fire McElwain
    5:14 PM CT
    • Edward Aschoff
    • Mark Schlabach

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- University of the Florida administrators are discussing whether they can fire coach Jim McElwain with cause, multiple sources told ESPN.

    After failing to find any evidence to substantiate claims made by McElwain this week that family and players received death threats, Florida administrators have worked to see if McElwain's allegations were enough to relieve the university from paying McElwain's full buyout of $12.9 million if he were to be fired.

    Sources told ESPN that they believe the university has enough cause to fire McElwain without having to pay his buyout. Sources also said that if McElwain were to be relieved of his duties, defensive coordinator Randy Shannon would be asked to be the team's interim coach.

    What an idiot to leave all that money on the table. Should have kept his mouth shut and lose, they would have let him go anyway!

    Well yeah they'll give him half to disappear.

    Hope the chip Kelly rumors are bogus. I can see mullen taking it however.
