"Our administration met with coach McElwain this afternoon and he offered no additional details", the school said in a statement. It's unclear whether he has been fired for cause, though an official release from Florida is expected at some point.

According to the report from FootballScoop, the decision to part ways between the program and the head coach were made today.

SC will face the Florida Gators in two weeks with an interim head coach.

Randy Shannon, who spent four seasons as the head coach of the Miami Hurricanes and the six years prior as UM's defensive coordinator, was named Florida's interim coach after Jim McElwain was sacked Sunday. Florida was eliminated from contention in the Eastern Division with a 42-7 loss to rival Georgia on Saturday.

McElwain's buyout is estimated at more than $12.75 million. On Saturday, sources told ESPN that the university had discussed whether it could fire McElwain with cause.

He became Florida's defensive coordinator following the departure of former defensive coordinator Geoff Collins, who left Gainesville to become the head coach at Temple before Florida's Outback Bowl appearance in early 2017.

McElwain was hired by then athletic director Jeremy Foley after the 2015 season and was brought to UF to generate a productive offense that had fallen dormant under defensive-minded coach Will Muschamp. He is the first coach in league history to reach the conference title game in each of his first two seasons.

McElwain was the center of criticism this week when he claimed he and his family received death threats.

In any case, McElwain is out after compiling a 22-12 record (16-8 in the SEC) over the course of two and a half seasons.
