    Since 1950, the Gators have had 11 Head Coaches. (No Interim).

    (1950-59) Bob Woodruff - 101 games - .554 w%
    (1960-69) Ray Graves - 105 games - .686 W%
    (1970- 78) Doug Dickey - 103 games - .573 W%
    (1979-84) Charlie Pell - 62 games - .556 W%
    (1984-89) Galen Hall - 59 games - .686 W%
    (1990-01) Steve Spurrier - 150 games - .817 W%
    (2002-04) Ron Zook - 37 games - .622 W%
    (2005-10) Urban Meyer - 80 games - .813 W%
    (2011-14) Will Muschamp - 49 Games - .571 W%
    (2015-17) Jim McElwain - 34 games - .647 W%
    (2018- ) Dan Mullen - 6 games - .833 W%

    *I was going to leave Mullen off because his sample size is so small but he is the HC.

    Avg. winning % is .669
    Avg. years HC is 5.5*
    Avg. # games coached 71*

    7 were fired
    1 retired
    2 Quit
    1 still HC

    Winning % big drop from SOS, Meyer, *Mullen to everyone else.

    * The Mullen effect.

      Sorry, I was reliving Pell's first year.

          I have a hard time picking a top 5.

          1 Spurrier - no doubt
          2. Meyer - close but should have stayed longer
          3. Graves - set the table
          4. Hall - could have been great
          4. Mullen? - too soon to know

            Dickey and Muschamp had almost the same winning percentage; 57.3% to 57.1%.

            I'm not sure why, but this thread made me think about the time when Muschamp started bringing in an extra offensive lineman for some run plays and bragged about it in the media like he was some genius and was unstoppable.. The whole situation reminded me of the 7 Minute Abs guy from There's Something about Mary.

              Wow - Galen had a better win % than I thought.
              Galen was a good dude.

              A shame about Pell. He had a good thing going until that asswipe coordinated the hit job on us.

              Hate to say it but Urby’s record is impressive.

              But as usual - HBC baby!
              Brought us out of the darkness and made us a perennial contender. Love that guy.

                  I always thought Hall did a good job with what he had.
