JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Florida coach Jim McElwain isn’t sure about his job status following a 42-7 loss to Georgia on Saturday, but he’s prepared for the worst.
When asked in his postgame press conference if he expects to remain at UF, McElwain didn’t give an encouraging answer.
“Well, nothing in this world surprises me,” McElwain said. “I know what I was brought here to do. Look, we haven’t been good on offense. I get it. We’ve won a few games, but we haven’t won enough, haven’t won a championship.
“That’s real. That’s life. That is this business, and I take full responsibility for all of it. There’s no doubt.”
McElwain said he takes “full responsibility” for Florida’s 3-4 record and the offensive struggles. He added that “no conversations” have been had with Gators AD Scott Stricklin.
“At the end of the day, we were all brought here to win and we haven’t done it,” McElwain said. “My concern isn’t about my job. My concern is about these players, our staff. We have a fantastic staff — coaches, support staff, their families. That’s the concern. It isn’t about me.”
