GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Florida's slow and plodding offense is history.
 
After the worst season in more than 30 years, coach Will Muschamp made significant changes - and not just to his staff.
 
Muschamp introduced three new assistants Monday - offensive coordinator Kurt Roper, offensive line coach Mike Summers and special teams coordinator Coleman Hutzler - and confirmed that the Gators are installing a hurry-up offensive scheme that will include spread elements.
 
Muschamp says "we needed more tempo, we needed to create more snaps, we needed to create more space plays. ... I felt like being in the gun would help some of our personnel, and that's where we're headed."
 
The Gators lost their final seven games in 2013, finished 4-8 and missed a bowl game for the first time since 1990. It was the program's first losing season since 1979.
