Florida players knew the questions likely were coming. But if they know the future of Jim McElwain, you didn’t see them tip their hands on Saturday night.
Following a 42-7 loss to Georgia, Gators QB Feleipe Franks was asked about McElwain’s future with the program.
Per Sports Illustrated’s Andy Staples, the response was short and to the point: “I’m not an athletic director.”

That’s not an indictment of his coach, but it wasn’t exactly words of support or encouragement, either.
ESPN reported earlier in the day that Florida officials were discussing the possibility of firing McElwain for cause following claims of death threats against family and players.
