    When things are going as well as they are at Florida right now, continuity is a great thing.

    Now let's see if Hevesy can get the offensive line whipped into shape (again)...

    He made a smart decision... We're on the rise... Our defense can play at a even better level than they played this season... We just need to be more stout against the run

    Luckily the youngsters are mostly in their 2nd season under the staff, I'm not all that worried about then personally. Hopefully we have some EE's that can grasp the scheme quickly.

    Would love the continuity! How do you even consider not giving it another year? There is serious leadership returning who are committed to ‘unfinished business’. How is he not fired up for that? He can make a huge statement in 2019 then maybe he gets his payday in the no fun league. Just frustrating that he waffling when he has 1.5 million reasons not to

    I'm so glad he has a family... and that played a part in his decision to stay. His son loves Gainesville and plays baseball and football in town.

    Go Gators!

    I’m relieved to hear it but I’m a grown up here, he stayed bec cincy is notoriously cheap. its irrelevant whether this was orchestrated to get more money or not. I’m happy

    Glad he is staying, but he will be gone in another year or two. With a good year next year he is going to get college head coaching offers making more money than a NFL DC.
    It is a smart play to stay for now.
