GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Florida has fired offensive coordinator Brent Pease and offensive line coach Tim Davis after the program's first losing season since 1979.

Pease and Davis were let go Sunday, a day after the Gators (4-8) ended the season with a humbling, 37-7 loss to rival Florida State.

The moves had been expected for weeks, as the losses mounted and it became clear coach Will Muschamp would make changes on the offensive side of the ball.

Pease and Davis were the primary scapegoats for a dismal season that included a dreadful offense and the worst loss in school history. The Gators finished the season ranked 112th in total offense. Florida managed just 279 yards in a 26-20 loss to lower-division Georgia Southern on Nov. 23 and then 193 against the Seminoles.
