Florida defensive tackle Jonathan Bullard writes Muschamp on eye black

Saturday November 22nd, 2014

Florida starting defensive lineman Jonathan Bullard wrote coach Will Muschamp's last name on his eye black for Saturday's 52-3 win over Eastern Kentucky.

Florida announced last Sunday that Muschamp will not be back as the Gators' coach next season but that he will be allowed to coach the final two games of this season. The news was first reported by SI.com.

Bullard is not the first Florida player to show support for Muchamp. Earlier this week, defensive lineman Dante Fowler Jr. posted the following message to his Twitter account. "I came in with champ. I'm leaving with Him."

Over nearly four seasons in charge in Gainesville, Muschamp has compiled a 28-20 record and 17-15 mark in conference play. Muschamp recently said that he wants to coach next season.

The Gators (6-4, 4-4 SEC) close the regular season with a Nov. 29 game at Florida State.
