Within 24 hours after Florida lost offensive coordinator Charlie Weis to Kansas, Gators coach Will Muschamp contacted Mike Shula about replacing him, the Gainesville Sun reported today.
The Sun wrote that Muschamp and Shula have spoken about the job and that he appears to be Florida’s top target. Click here to read the story.
Shula, 46, is the son of legendary Miami Dolphins coach Don Shula.
Mike Shula currently works as the quarterbacks coach of the Carolina Panthers. He was Alabama’s head coach from 2003 through ’06, going 26-23, before the Crimson Tide fired him and hired Nick Saban.
Shula’s first full position as an assistant coach came in 1993 when the Chicago Bears hired him as their tight ends coach. He also has worked for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1996-99, offensive coordinator), Miami Dolphins (2000-02, quarterbacks coach) and Jacksonville Jaguars (2007-10, quarterbacks coach).

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton sat down with ESPN The Magazine as a candidate of this year’s NEXT class. During the interview Newton discussed his displeasure of losing and wanting to change the culture in Carolina to a winning one. Have a listen at what this year’s #1 overall draft choice had to say. [...]
In a recent interview with Steveland Wilson of ESPN The Magazine, Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton went into an interesting treatise about the culture of winning, and his own role in rebuilding the Panthers. Wilson asked Newton what his emotions are in situations where he plays well and the Panthers don't win, and that opened up the floodgates.
"What happens when...
When Cam Newton said in an interview with ESPN that he needs the Panthers to get “on my level,” there was some talk that it could be viewed as an arrogant comment, and cause for resentment in the Panthers’ locker room. But it turns out that the leaders in the Panthers’ locker room agree. Panthers…
Cam Newton has exceeded expectations this season, but his Panthers continue to serve as easy prey for opponents, something the rookie quarterback simply cannot accept.
I love the game we picked this week for our weekly NFL on FOX rivalry rant. In a Ron Pitts and Jim Mora special, it's Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers hosting Matt Ryan and the Falcons in a huge game for the 7-5 Falcons. The hatred runs deep between these division rivals. Cam Newton's had a magical rookie season. The Falcons are coming off of a brutal loss on the road...
Well, for a half it looked as if the Panthers had become the team that coach Rivera said he always knew they could be, and Cam Newton could do no wrong, throwing for nearly 150 yards and two scores. The defense, having to start two guys at defensive tackle that have barely seen the field this year, played inspired football in the first half and limited an explosive Falcons offense...
The Carolina Panthers and the Atlanta Falcons were going in two completely different directions. With no hope for the playoffs, the Panthers were turning it on last week in a big win. On the other side of the 50, the Falcons were in the wildcard hunt, but losing a close game to the Texans last week….. now Carolina was set for a NFC South battle.
It was a tail of two halves. With...
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- If only the NFL would shorten its games to 45 minutes instead of 60, the Carolina Panthers might just be in playoff contention.
Instead, they're 4-9.
In what has been an all too familiar refrain this season, the Panthers blew yet another fourth-quarter lead Sunday in a 31-23 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. The Panthers led by 16 at halftime and by 6 entering...
Today the Atlanta Falcons traveled to Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina to take on the Carolina Panthers. The first quarter of play was full of promise for the Falcons, as the team’s second drive of the game went 63 yards and ended on a 5-yard touchdown pass from Matt Ryan to Roddy White, which gave the Falcons a 7-0 lead with 5:29 left...
The Atlanta Falcons look poised to improve their chances at making the postseason this year, but the team must be ready to play this Sunday, when they take on the Carolina Panthers at Bank of America Stadium. The Falcons, currently 7-5 and fresh off a disappointing 17-10 loss to the Houston Texans, have already beat the 4-8 Panthers once this season...
Ray Lewis basically killed me (too?) with this joke he sent to Blindside, that Blindside tweeted out late Wednesday night:
