Randy Shannon, previously the coach of Miami, is set to serve as interim coach for Florida.

With Florida reportedly firing coach Jim McElwain following a 42-7 loss to Georgia, the Gators are set to turn to defensive coordinator Randy Shannon on an interim basis, according to the Associated Press.

Shannon was previously the head coach at Miami and would become the first man to ever coach both the Hurricanes and the Gators. He spent four years with Miami, compiling a 28-22 record before being fired before the Hurricanes’ bowl game in 2010. He also built a reputation as a coach who did things by the book, as he was one of the few names to emerge unstained from the Nevin Shapiro scandal between 2002 and 2010.

Florida must win three of its final four games to become bowl eligible. The Gators visit Missouri next week and will finish the season with South Carolina, Alabama-Birmingham and Florida State.
