The off-season is a time to hone skills and improve on the fundamentals of your position. For Florida head coach Will Muschamp, that means he'll be spending a lot of time on the public speaking circuit.
The third-year Gators coach will speak 10 times between April 2 and the end of May, with the majority of those dates coming in May. Much like Florida's non-conference scheduling strategy, Muschamp won't leave the Sunshine State very often.
April 2 - Gainesville Quarterback Club
April 6 - Florida spring game
May 2 - Tampa Gator Club/Pinellas Gator Club
May 7 - Polk County Gator Club, Lakeland, Fla.
May 8 - Central Florida Gator Club, Orlando
May 14 - Gator Club of Jacksonville
May 15 - Atlanta Gator Club
May 20 - Jacksonville Quarterback Club
TBD - Daytona Beach Gator Club
A few Florida assistants will also get their public speaking work in, as defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin will speak in Fort Myers on May 6, wide receivers coach Joker Phillips will speak in Palm Beach and defensive line coach Bryant Young will speak in Panama City on the following day, and offensive line coach Tim Davis will visit with the Space Coast Gator Club in Brevard County on May 14.
Expect each of those coaches, Muschamp in particular, to be masters at handling the "So, how we lookin' this year, Coach?" question by Memorial Day.
