Florida fired coach Dan Mullen on Sunday, one day after his team's 24–23 overtime loss to Missouri.
Mullen, 49, went 34–15 over three-plus seasons with the Gators, but Florida fell to 5–6 this year after a fifth consecutive loss in SEC play.
The university will owe Mullen $12 million in buyout money after Sunday's dismissal. He will receive $6 million over the next 30 days before receiving $1 million every July 15 through 2027.
Special teams coordinator/running backs coach Greg Knox will serve as the Gators' interim coach for their game against Florida State next weekend.
