Billy Napier hopes Vols fan family finds ‘soft spot for Gators’ as Florida prepares to face Tennessee

Billy Napier is a native of Tennessee and the son of a football school.

Florida’s first-year coach, who was born in Cookeville, Tenn. and grew up just 20 miles south of the Volunteer state line in Chatsworth, Ga., shared Wednesday that he’s long been familiar with the Florida-Tennessee football rivalry — mostly in name only , as the Gators own wins in 16 of the last 17 meetings – but found a turnaround.

His father, Bill Napier, who coached his son at quarterback at Murray County High School, is a longtime Vols fan.

Napier’s Gators (2-1, 0-1 SEC) visit No. 11 Tennessee (3-0) on Saturday at Neyland Stadium (3:30 p.m.).
