Florida football coach Jim McElwain and men’s basketball coach Mike White both received contract extensions and raises designed to keep them in Gainesville for the foreseeable future.


Both deserve it.

I can see the wisdom of the move, though I wonder whether it would have been good to give Mac another year before making the decision. Perhaps there was a fear that a banner year could make it harder to keep him. Hope the move pays off for both teams.

Well deserved.  We don't want either of these two coaches getting away over compensation.


We didn't win the NC in football, but the SEC East two years in a row shows progress.


Mike White did very well in his two years.  I'm curious how he will recruit and sustain the high level of the Florida hoops program.
