UF’s Muschamp Says Coaches “100% Responsible” For Their Players’ Off-Field Behavior

FLORIDA MEDIA DAYSFlorida’s Will Muschamp was asked today how much responsibility a coach has for the off-field behavior of his players.  His response was perfect:

 

“You’re a hundred percent responsible.  When you sign a student-athlete to come the University of Florida, I look at his parents or his guardians and I tell them it’s my job to be an extension of what’s already happened at home.  But you’re one hundred percent responsible for the young man…

I can’t possibly know everything that happens every single night with our football team, but you also can’t stick your head in the sand and pretend that everything’s OK.  You need to be very aware of the kind of guys your guys are hanging out with.  I encourage our (staff) to constantly be with our guys.”

 

Can a coach truly be fully responsible for what his players do?  No.  A coach can’t be with 100 players all day and all night every day and night.

Still, it’s refreshing to hear a coach take full responsibility.  And in Muschamp’s case, you get the sense he’s not just paying lip service to that notion.  After all, when he gave former star Gator defensive back Janoris Jenkins the heave-ho after repeated off-field incidents, Jenkins famously said, “If Coach (Urban) Mayer were still coaching, I’d still be playing for the Gators.”

Meyer talked a good game on the discipline front but his track record suggested it was all just a lot of hot air.  Muschamp appears to be running a tighter ship in Gainesville these days.  And that gives today’s statement a lot more weight.
