Five thoughts on the Napier hire

The Gators officially announced Billy Napier as their next head coach on Sunday afternoon. Here are five of my thoughts on the hire.

1. As I mentioned in my article right after Dan Mullen was fired, I believe Napier is the right person for the job.

He checks all of the boxes of things that the Gators missed under Mullen. Napier should improve recruiting substantially. He’ll bring discipline, organization and a vision to a program that seemed to be flying by the seat of its pants over the past four years.

He’s young and energetic, which will infuse some much-needed new life into the program.
