Furthermore, McElwain came out recently and said he, his family, players and coaches have all received death threats - a claim he never did substantiate when asked to do so.
Even before the game, though, ESPN reported that Florida officials were exploring whether they had the legal standing to fire McElwain with cause-and therefore without paying his $12.9 million buyout-due to his admittedly dishonest reference to supposed death threats earlier in the week. Shannon, who was Miami's head coach from 2007 to '10, was promoted to defensive coordinator in January. Yesterday, rumors began to swirl about McElwain's future and Florida exploring the possibility of firing him with cause, and AD Scott Stricklin attempted to quiet them nearly immediately.
He took over as head coach at Florida starting with the 2015 season, where he led the Gators to a 10-2 regular season and the program's first SEC Eastern Division title since 2009. As he refused to provide any details either publicly or in private to athletic director Scott Stricklin, it seemed to be the beginning of the end for the head coach.

"I know what I was brought here to do", McElwain said Saturday.

"We've won a few games", McElwain said, "but we haven't won enough, haven't won a championship".
The Gators' offense is ranked 112th in yards per game this season. That's real. That's life.

Overall, McElwain went 22-12 as Florida's head coach, 16-6 in conference play and 0-6 overall against the teams like Alabama, Florida State, and MI. That is this business, and I take full responsibility for all of it.
