Florida newspaper roasts Michigan’s Jim McElwain with headline

The Jim McElwain era at Florida officially came to an end in October 2017, as McElwain and the program mutually agreed to part ways amid controversy. However, a Florida newspaper is still taking shots at the former Gators coach.

McElwain — who is now the wide receivers coach at Michigan — received a $7.5 million buyout from Flordia after he claimed that Florida players and their families received death threats. These threats went unreported, causing controversy that led to the eventual split-up.

While both Florida and McElwain have appeared to move on from the situation after the buyout, McElwain still took a hit financially, according to the Tampa Bay Times. The paper reports that McElwain sold his $1.8 million home in Gainesville, Fla. for $1.4 million in January. This led to the paper using the headline, “McElwain sells home, take another loss.”

The headline was borrowed from an Associated Press story.

McElwain bought the home for $1.8 million in 2015.

In just under three seasons at Florida, McElwain went 22-12 overall.
