Found November 27, 2012 on Fox Sports South:
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- No. 5 Florida didn't wait to give coach Will Muschamp a contract extension. The Gators (11-1) gave him one before the season. President Bernie Machen and athletic director Jeremy Foley met in August and agreed to extend Muschamp's contract for a year, through 2017. The Gainesville Sun first reported the extension Tuesday. Foley says in a statement that he and Machen "believed in the leadership and direction of the football program this summer and we made a decision to extend coach Muschamp's contract an additional year this past August, prior to the start of the season." Financial terms remain the same, giving Muschamp another year at 2.7 million annually. In January, after the Gators finished 7-6 in Muschamp's first season, Florida picked up a one-year option in the contract.
