With news traveling faster than ever, it has become nearly impossible for coaches to get information about their status to their players before the news breaks on various social media.

McElwain was able to gather the player's later in the morning for a proper goodbye after the he had been announced as the next coach fo the Florida Gators.

Earlier this week, fired Nebraska coach Bo Pelini gathered his players for a farewell meeting at a local high school after being let go on Sunday.
