Last week, it was reported that Stoops was third on the LSU Tigers’ list with Jimbo Fischer and Bill O'Brien as the candidates ahead of him.

On Saturday, the Florida Gators lost their fourth game out of the last five in a 24-23 overtime loss to the Missouri Tigers.

It was then announced on Sunday that Florida has fired head coach Dan Mullen.
