The Florida Gators have fired third-year football coach Ron Zook and his staff, ESPN's Kirk Herbstreit reported Monday.
Ron Zook and the Gators fell to 4-3 on Saturday.
Athletic director Jeremy Foley will meet with members of the team this afternoon and then announce that Zook and his staff will coach the team for the remainder of the season, Herbstreit reported.
The firing comes on the heels of the Gators' 38-31 loss Saturday to Mississippi State, the worst team in the SEC.
His teams haven't had the swagger of those under his predecessor Steve Spurrier, who lost only six home games in 12 years and won a national championship.
When asked about his future Sunday, Zook focused on next Saturday.
"I just have to worry about this next game right now," Zook said. "That's all I have any control over."
