    Due to medical reasons, Urban Meyer has decided to step down as coach of the Florida Gators after their bowl game. What a shocker, especially in the SEC.

      His job is stressful, we just hope he will have a time to rest and gain back his health, which suffered beacuse of his job....

    I hope he recovers soon. He is very young in the business. Hopefully he will only be out for a short time frame, but his health is more important right now.

    That's kinda crazy, but I would think he has made enough money and generated enough of a rep. that he could take some cushy speaking job or something and kick back, if it's really that much of a stress for him to coach.

    It puts things in perspective.  Life is for the living.  If he died tomorrow it wouldn't help the program any more than if he just walked away.

    I read an article yesterday about the PROFIT in College Football. The top 20 teams clearing between 18-80 million per year.  Florida was in the top 10.

    It's a good time to step down and bring in a new person.

    Well, he did not quit but will step back and take a leave of absence after the Sugar Bowl.

    He decided to take a leave of absence after he had announced he was stepping down. I am sure the University of Florida will work with him as much as possible to help.

      Or they knew they had a great guy and couldn't afford the negative publicity at this time of high recruitment...  Sorry to be so negative but we haven't heard the last of this story yet.

        You have an excellent point. It could be devastating for recruitment.
