On Nov. 16, it was reported that then-Florida coach Will Muschamp would not return for the 2015 season. He still coached the team for the remainder of the season. Florida beat Eastern Kentucky the following Saturday, but lost Muschamp's last game against Florida State.
This is McElwain's third season as the head coach of the Rams. He went going 4-8 in his first year with the team, and improved to 8-6 last season.
Prior to being hired at Colorado State, McElwain spent four seasons as the offensive coordinator at Alabama.
