"Both Coach Mac and Coach White have done a phenomenal job of leading our programs and we are looking forward to having them lead the Gators for years to come," Stricklin said in a statement. "As much as both have won games and provided a lot of great memories for our fans and stability for the programs they lead, they have both had a huge impact on the development and personal growth of the athletes they coach."
"The thing you have to respect about Coach Mac is he has never shied away from discipline as a teachable moment," Stricklin said. "You heard from him the other day that he's staying on top of that and it's obviously a concern. To answer your question, I've had conversation with Coach Mac and we'll probably have further conversations about it."
