    Florida taps Louisiana-Lafayette’s Billy Napier as next football coach

    Gainesville, Fla. — A person familiar with the search says Louisiana-Lafayette’s Billy Napier will be Florida’s next football coach, ending a quick process that landed the Gators their top target.

    The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Sunday because Napier and the Gators had yet to make the hiring official. A formal announcement was expected later Sunday.

    The 42-year-old Napier is expected to remain with the Ragin Cajuns (11-1) this week as they prepare to host Appalachian State (10-2) in the Sun Belt Conference championship game Saturday.

    Napier will then take over for Dan Mullen, who was fired last week after the team’s fourth loss in five games. Mullen was let go less than a year after leading the Gators to a third consecutive New Year’s Six bowl.
