Straight from their website. "The University of Florida is the only program in the nation to finish among the nationís top 10 in each of the last 29 national all-sports standings."

When you have an athletic budget like they have and are in a state that is known for tennis, you are expected to produce.

I think they will be back in the top 8 in the next 3 years and top 5 in the next 5 years.
Not to stray too far off topic, but what about women's basketball at UF? They are never a top 10 and rarely a top 25 team. Should they just roll through coaching staffs endlessly?

Anyways, I think the expectation Foley has of Brian is to be "in the hunt for a national championship every year". Hearing Foley say that struck me as odd since Andy was fired a year off of winning the SEC. I think more went into that dismissal than just results.
