Updated: 12:17pm, February 27

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Gators football coach Will Muschamp’s annual 8-stop speaking tour opens April 2 when Muschamp speaks to the Gainesville Quarterback Club.

Muschamp and several of his assistant coaches will hit the road regularly this spring to speak to Florida football fans once the Gators complete spring practice with the Orange & Blue Debut spring game on April 6. Muschamp’s speaking engagement at the Gainesville Quarterback Club is his only appearance prior to the spring game.

In an attempt to give as many Florida fans the opportunity to hear Muschamp or one of his assistants speak around the state and in the Atlanta area – a hotbed for UF alumni – the speaking tour is a product of a collaborative effort by the UF Alumni Association, Gator Boosters, and the University Athletic Association.

Muschamp will open his third season at Florida when the Gators host Toledo in the 2013 season opener on Aug. 31.

Other scheduled speaking engagements for Muschamp this spring include May 1 (Titletown Gator Club in Gainesville), May 2 (Tampa Gator Club/Pinellas County Gator Club), May 7 (Polk County Gator Club in Lakeland), May 8 (Central Florida Gator Club in Orlando), May 14 (Gator Club of Jacksonville) and May 21 (Atlanta Gator Club).

Muschamp also has a speaking engagement scheduled May 23 with the Fighting Gator Touchdown Club in Gainesville.

Meanwhile, assistant coaches D.J. Durkin, Bryant Young, Joker Phillips and Tim Davis also have speaking engagements planned.

Durkin, Florida’s new defensive coordinator, will speak May 6 to the Southwest Florida Gator Club in Fort Myers; Young, the defensive tackles coach, will speak to the Panhandle Gator Club in Panama City on May 7; Phillips, the former Kentucky head coach in his first year as the Gators’ receivers coach, will speak to the Palm Beach County Gator Club on May 7; and offensive line coach Davis is speaking to the Space Coast Gator Club in Brevard County on May 14.
