GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Florida officials are coming to coach Will Muschamp's defense.

Athletic director Jeremy Foley and school president Bernie Machen voiced strong support for Muschamp on Wednesday, telling the school's website they are fully committed to keeping Muschamp around to fix the team's problems.

The Gators (4-5) have their second four-game losing streak in Muschamp's three seasons and are facing the possibility of missing a bowl game for the first time since 1990. If Florida doesn't upset No. 11 South Carolina or second-ranked Florida State this month, the program would have its first losing record since 1979.

Foley says he's "a thousand percent convinced that Will Muschamp is the guy to lead this football program. Nothing has changed in what we feel about Will Muschamp from the day we hired him."
