It seemed like a matter of time especially after yesterday's overtime loss to lowly Missouri and according to Matt Zenitz, it's official, Dan Mullen has been relieved of his duties as head coach of the Florida Gators. 

The Gators still seek bowl eligibility, currently standing 5-6, with Florida State on deck this Saturday. 

Mullen was 34-15 across nearly four full seasons in Gainesville but had gone just 13-10 over the last two years. 

The Gators nearly beat Alabama, losing 31-29 in September, but have taken on water since. Mullen's squad lost of four of five including yesterday's overtime defeat at the hands of the Tigers and at times it clearly looked like the Gators had quit on their head coach. 

Two weeks ago, Florida struggled to beat FCS Samford before a second half outburst secured a 70-52 win. 

Mullen lost nine of his last 11 versus power five opponents. 

Missouri coach Eli Drinkwitz had some fun with Mullen yesterday, going all Star Wars on him after Mullen came to last year's postgame presser after beating Missouri in a Darth Vader costume.
