Galen Hall, who has a 6-0 record as interim football coach at the University of Florida since Charley Pell was fired in September, reportedly has rejected the initial contract offer from Athletic Director Bill Carr to become the permanent coach.
According to the Orlando Sentinel, Hall turned down a two-year contract. "Galen was disappointed with the first offer," one source said. "It was embarrassing."
Coaches at the nation's top football schools traditionally receive four-year contracts. Pell had such an agreement when he was fired for his role in NCAA rules violations.
Hall confirmed negotiations are continuing but said no contract has been signed.
