Jim McElwain is set to have a reunion in 2020.
Eastern Washington will travel to Gainesville to take on the Gators for their first ever contest against an SEC foe on Sept. 5, 2020, the two schools announced on Wednesday.
Florida coach Jim McElwain played quarterback from Eastern Washington from 1980-83, graduating from the school in 1984 with an education degree. He also spent the first 10 years of his coaching career with the Eagles.
“This is pretty cool to be able to add Eastern Washington to the schedule,” McElwain said in a press release. “I spent 15 years at Eastern and it is such a huge part of my life. I met my wife, Karen, there and all of my children were born there. I have so many great memories of my time at Eastern and I still have friends there to this day.”
