08:26 AM ET 01.04 | As the 2010 season draws to a close and the offseason carousel keeps spinning, Will Muschamp has filled eight vacant positions with a group that includes three coaches with extensive NFL experience. Headlining the list is former Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis, 54, who coached four years with the Super Bowl champion Patriots and is now the offensive coordinator with the Chiefs. ... Others joining the staff: Dan Quinn, a 17-year coaching veteran who has spent the past 10 seasons in the NFL, will be the defensive coordinator, and Frank Verducci, 53, who has 28 years of coaching experience at the collegiate and NFL levels, will oversee the offensive line and be running game coordinator.

I think you will see they have to many Chieftains...Spurrier will rule them for the rest of his term.

They might have to wait a couple of years to see drastic changes if the SEC is as good as some SEC fans claim.

Not likely but why don't we see how Muschamp does before we start trashing him.

He is also getting quite a bit of criticism for it. If nothing else it should be interesting.

The fact that Weis' kid will be attending Florida gives us hope that Charlie will stick around for 4+ years. I like the hires, now let's see what those coaches can do with the spread option recruits they have.

Or we could just ask the Big10 what they think of the SEC. :)

First quad of the new year. Happy new year, all!

I just wonder how long it will take to make such a drastic change in the O. Gator fans may not like witing a few years. LOL

After an 7-5 regular season, I'm willing to give Will a couple years to recruit the players that will work in this new system.

Dan Mullen is gone. Urban is leaving. It's time to turn the page and start a new chapter.

The offense will have entertainment value once again.

Results back up the claims for those objective enough to believe facts.

Exactly. It's not like Spurrier is setting the world on fire in SC.

Well they are converting to pro-style... The QB is in place as well as the WRs... Plus the incoming QB fits that style as well... My concern would be the RBs... They do lose some good players but they have recruited well... I dont think UF will have to wait long

I sure hope you aren't referring to Brantley as the QB in place! I know o-line play, and play calling was for **** this year, but JB shows little leadership, fire, or the ability to withstand pressure. My hopes are riding on Jeff Driskell (the new QB coming in early) and Blakely (a top-notch RB coming in too).

SECW is legit as they come.. whether you want to admit it or not

We won't talk about the SECE this year. :( USCe, Tenn and UGA sure stunk it up in their bowl games. Florida didn't play any better, but we have PSU's QB to thank for our bowl victory (and Ahmad Black).

The SECw was hands-down the toughest division (hell, conference) in football this year. The SECe will be up again soon. UGA was a disaster this year, but still has talent. UT can only stay down for so long. And let's hope my Gators get back up to elite status w/in the next 2-3 years.
