Florida athletic director Scott Stricklin is in the middle of possibly the most important coaching hire of his short time at the school.

While those are undoubtedly big names that Florida should be looking at, they are likely to also look at UCF’s Scott Frost and Mississippi State’s Dan Mullen since they are two of the hottest coaches in the profession right now.
