The Florida Gators suffered their first losing season since 1979 this year and one of the men paying the price for it will be offensive coordinator Brent Pease.

Florida finished the season 4-8 following a 37-7 loss to Florida State.

“I have a lot of respect for Coach Pease and Coach Davis,” coach Will Muschamp said in a statement. “They are both good football coaches and even better people. There have been a lot of unfortunate circumstances this year, but that is part of the game sometimes. I want to thank each of them for their contributions to the program both on and off the field.”

The move is hardly a surprise. Pease served two years at Florida after taking over for Charlie Weis. Previously Pease spent six seasons with Boise State.

On Saturday Florida’s athletic director gave head coach Will Muschamp a vote of confidence.
