Muschamp also said he got a call from Gator great Emmitt Smith, the NFL Hall of Famer, who called for Driskel to be benched during Florida's 42-21 loss to Alabama last Saturday.
"Emmitt called to apologize, to me, to Jeff Driskel and our football team," Muschamp said. "He was frustrated. He wants us to win. He wants us to be successful."
"Jeff needs to play better and I think he'd be the first person to tell you that," Muschamp said. "... He certainly forced some things that we can't afford to do, especially on two of the interceptions."
