Muschamp undecided on future of wide receivers coach
Posted by: Pete Roussel on November 12, 2012
Will Muschamp complimented his young wide receivers coach Bush Hamden, who took over the responsibility of coaching the Florida wide outs just before the season, due to the resignation of Aubrey Hill.
Muschamp didn't go as far as saying that Hamden would continue as the wide receivers coach past this season, but he admitted, ""He has done great this year. I thought you said Hammond. Frankie Hammond, he has been here long enough to be a coach. I think he has done a fabulous job. I think back to my first full-time coaching job was at West Georgia, a little different than The Swamp. He has done a fabulous job. He has a really good understanding of our schemes and system, having been exposed to it before. I think he has done a really nice job."
Muschamp added, "I am focused on our season right now and what we are trying to do, get these next two. We will cross that bridge when we come to it. He has done a fabulous job for us."
Hamden was a back-up quarterback at Boise State during his college days. His familiarity with Brent Pease's system help him land the offensive GA position with the Gators before being trust into the wide receivers role.
Before joining the Florida staff, Hamden served as the tight ends coach at Sacramento State. He also served as an offensive intern at Maryland.
The Gators are 9-1 after blocking a punt with 9 seconds remaning to beat UL-Lafayette. You want to talk about a gut-wrenching defeat for Mark Hudsepth. Can you imagine the flight home, or the mood in the Sunday afternoon staff meeting?
