The Florida Gators won’t have their head coach Will Muschamp back next year.

After a struggling season, the coach is out after the final two games of the regular season vs. Eastern Kentucky and Florida State.

With the news comes speculation as to who may be up for the job next season.

Here are 5 possible replacements to become head coach of the Florida Gators:

1. Jim Harbaugh – current San Francisco 49ers head coach.

With rumors that Harbaugh has lost his locker room, the head coach may be looking for a new gig soon. It’s not like he hasn’t coached a college program before after coming to the 49ers from Stanford University.

2. Rich Rodriguez – current University of Arizona head coach.

As the former head coach for West Virginia University and the University of Michigan, Rodriguez has a long list of experience. According to college football insider Pat Forde, Rodriguez is a real contender for the job.

 3. Dan Mullen – current Mississippi State head coach.

The high-flying Mississippi State Bulldogs are having a tremendous season and Mullen is to thank. During an interview with Seth Davis, Mullen seemed to insinuate that a conversation about leaving Mississippi State has been brought up.

4. Mack Brown – former University of Texas head coach.

Brown went 158-48 and won a national title as head coach of the Texas Longhorns. Most recently, SMU tried to lure him back to the sidelines with $4 million a year.

5. Brent Venables – current defensive coordinator at Clemson University.

Venables has led the Clemson Tigers to become a defensive powerhouse and with the talent the Florida Gators have, he could turn the program around.
