The 1936 Florida Gators football team represented the University of Florida during the 1936 college football season. The season was Josh Cody's first as the new head coach of the Florida Gators football team. The highlights of the season included a 32–0 shutout of the Stetson College Hatters, a Homecoming game win over the Maryland Terrapins (7–6), and the Gators' only conference victory over the Sewanee Tigers (18–7), but the season was also remembered for the Gators' three disappointing 0–7 shutout losses to the South Carolina Gamecocks, Kentucky Wildcats and Mississippi State Bulldogs. Cody's 1936 Florida Gators finished 4–6 overall and 1–5 in the Southeastern Conference (SEC), placing tenth of thirteen SEC teams in the conference standings—Cody's worst SEC finish in four seasons as the Gators football coach.
