Florida Refutes Story Of Drayton Departure

Maybe Stan Drayton is staying put in Gainesville after all.  Maybe.

Last night The Cleveland Plain-Dealer reported that Florida’s running backs coach (and recruiting coordinator) was planning to accept a job offer from Ohio State to become the Buckeyes’ receivers coach.

One problem: The University of Florida says today that that’s not true.

“Coach (Will) Muschamp is on the road recruiting and our coaching staff remains intact at this time,” said a UF spokesman.  The words “at this time” could be key, of course.

A few things could be playing out here:

1.  The Plain-Dealer is completely off base and Drayton never planned to take the OSU job.

2.  Florida has made Drayton a counteroffer and convinced him to stay in Gainesville.  (He was one of only three Urban Meyer assistants retained by Muschamp in the first place.)

3.  Drayton is planning to take the OSU job and he’s told Muschamp about it… but he also agreed to keep a lid on the move until after signing day so as not to damage the Gators’ class.

Stay tuned.
