Dallas Colleges: Florida
Muschamp accepted an offer Saturday to replace Urban Meyer, who resigned from the Gators on Wednesday.
Muschamp was the defensive coordinator at Texas the last three seasons and had been tabbed as Mack Brown's eventual replacement.
"We were planning and hoping Will was going to be the next head coach at Texas, but obviously things didn't work out that way,” Brown said in a statement. "We respect his decision and we are really happy for Will and Carol. He is a great coach and will be a good fit for Florida. It's close to home for him and he knows the league well."
Brown finds himself in need of two coordinators. Offensive coordinator Greg Davis resigned Monday after the Longhorns went 5-7 and failed to qualify for a bowl.
