Dan Mullen was fired as head coach of the Florida football team over the weekend, following the Gators’ fourth loss in a row to a Power Five program.

Immediately, speculation began about who will replace Mullen in Gainesville and the oddsmakers were ready to share their thoughts.

According to the oddsmakers, Louisiana-Lafayette head coach Billy Napier is the favorite to land the job after turning around the Ragin’ Cajuns program. During his time in Lafayette, Napier has an overall record of 38-12, including the 2020 Sun Belt Championship.

Ole Miss head coach Lane Kiffin is also one of the top candidates according to the odds, along with Oregon Ducks head coach Mario Cristobal and former Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops.

And, just for fun, Urban Meyer and Tim Tebow were thrown onto the list as longshots.

Who else could be in the mix?
