Florida’s new head coach, Jim McElwain, is a bit of a goober (VIDEO)

The Florida Gators have hired Jim McElwain to be their next head football coach.

Jim McElwain likes to laugh. A lot.

Previously the coach at Colorado State, the video below shows McElwain having a little fun during a recent press conference. And why shouldn’t he? The Rams went 10-2 in the Mountain West Conference this season.

In fact, CSU got markedly better in each season under McElwain, which is why he was given one of the top jobs in college football.

And even though I’m a Florida State alumnus, it’s refreshing to see a head coach have a little fun when there are so many coaches out there that act as if talking to the media is akin to being waterboarded.
