Florida Gators football, men’s basketball and women’s basketball will now be sporting Jordan Brand gear. Just like when every other school found out they’d be part of the Jumpman family, they were excited.
Both football head coach Dan Mullen and Steelers cornerback Joe Haden, an alumnus sponsored by Jordan, are especially pumped up for the “swag.”
Per the Gators news release, Mullen said:
“I was excited to hear that the Florida football program was partnering with the Jordan brand. I know our players and staff will be pumped up for the new swag and I can’t wait to wear my new AJ1 FlyKnits.”
In a promo video, Haden said that this will bring “another level of swag” to the program. The Gators are the fourth collegiate football squad to be part of the Jordan team.
The players are probably eagerly waiting to get the shoes if they haven’t gotten them already. That seems to always be the best part.
