Florida AD Foley backs coach Muschamp again

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP/WVLT) -- Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley says he's not going to panic after the program's first losing season since 1979.

Foley held an impromptu news conference before the Gators' season finale against No. 2 Florida State on Saturday, reiterating "total confidence" in coach Will Muschamp and adding that "we've got to fix some things" on the offensive side of the ball.

The Gators lost to the Seminoles 37-7, giving Muschamp a 22-16 record in three seasons in Gainesville. Florida entered the game coming off its worst lost in school history -- a 26-20 debacle against lower-division Georgia Southern last Saturday.

Probably the only thing that has saved Muschamp this season is last year's 11-2 record that included a trip to the Sugar Bowl.

The Gators (4-8) have lost seven consecutive games -- their longest losing streak in 34 years.
