Robert Griffin III Throws Out Some Ludicrous Names To Be Florida’s Head Coach

Videos by OutKick

Look, we all have our opinions on who should be the head coach for Florida next season, but ESPN analyst Robert Griffin III has taken the cake when it comes to ludicrous names.

After giving his opinion on the Paul Finebaum Show on Friday, some thought he was just messing around by saying Tim Tebow would be a great hire.

But during the Florida vs. Florida State game today, he doubled down, with a few additions. While discussing the head coach opening, Griffin mentioned Notre Dame DC Marcus Freeman and former Florida WR Ike Hilliard, who is the WR coach for the Steelers.

I don’t know who Griffin has been getting some of these names from, but to say he’s stretching, would be an understatement. I get trying to throw out some off-the-wall names to get attention, but these takes are just making him look worse.

But yea, I am sure other SEC programs would love for one of these hires to happen.

  1. The 2 other candidates he me turned has coaching experience. Tim Tebow has NONE. What’s wrong with the names of Hillard and Freeman again? Lord knows Lane Kiffin doesn’t deserve to have his name mentioned for another job. Get a fresh face and stop with recycled good old boys…..ijs
