After two losing seasons in Gainesville, Florida head coach Billy Napier is likely heading into a make-or-break year in 2024.

Former Gators head coach Steve Spurrier recently spoke with Florida reporter Gene Frenette who was somewhat critical of Napier. Per On3:

“There’s a feeling around the Gators of ‘What the heck are we doing?’” Steve Spurrier said, according to Frenette. “There’s a lot of questions that I don’t have the answers to about organization.

“Just because you hire the most people doesn’t mean you’re going to win. All these extra people, I question how much that really helps.”

Spurrier likes Napier as a person, but he isn’t sure about all of the strategies he is implementing in Gainesville.

“Billy [Napier] is a good guy who works his tail off. I like Billy, good family man. But we do wish the organization was a little bit more tidy,” Spurrier said, according to Frenette.
Do you think Napier can right the ship and get things turned around at Florida?

Spurrier should realize that he is no longer a coach of any sort, at UF or anywhere else and keep his trap shut. He coached in a bygone era, the olden days.

“ He coached in a bygone era, the olden days.”
He was leading South Carolina to top 10 finishes a decade ago. When did 9-10 years become the “olden days”?

It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.
