Florida’s Meyer Steps Down

Urban Meyer is stepping down as football coach at Florida.  Haven’t we heard this one before?

He says in a statement that he wants to put his focus more on his family and life away from the football field.  Do you really believe that? I don’t!

Remember, this is the same song and dance we went through last season too.  Meyer announcing he was retiring because of health concerns, only to back away from that a day later and announce he was taking a leave of absence from coaching. He was back to coaching the Gators before Spring Practice even started.

I’m sure this has nothing to do with the Gators 7-5 record and 4-4 mark in the SEC this year, right?  By the way, this was Florida’s worst season since 1988.

I’m also sure it has nothing to do with the Denver Broncos coaching position being vacant either, right?  Remember, Tim Tebow (the QB who delivered both National Championships for him at Florida) is now a back-up QB with the Broncos.

Meyer will actually coach his last game for Florida in the January 1st Outback Bowl against Penn State in Tampa.  So a 46-year old coach is saying the Outback Bowl will be his last game while the guy on the other side of the field (83-year-old Joe Paterno) is still ticking for Penn State?  I don’t get it.

I don’t know if Meyer will end up in the NFL next season but I seriously doubt he’ll be “spending more time with his family” come next fall.  Stay tuned!!
