Just heard on ESPN that Urban Meyer will step down as the head football coach of the Florida Gators. He was 95-18 in 5 years at Florida. No details as of yet as to whether or not he will still coach the Sugar Bowl.

More Details to come

I bet Notre Dame wishes that this happened about a month ago. They could have gotten him healthy and put him on the sideline.

Yeah, get healthy with probably the most stress filled and difficult job in the country. No way that happens, this has probably been developing for awhile, and theres no way he takes that job at ND .

I would have to think that he has some sort of heart issues. It seems like anything else could be worked around his schedule. It will be interesting to see his press conference tomorrow. On a related note ROLL TIDE!!!!!!!!!

I think this has to do with Tebow Leaving. It broke his heart. Literally.

Let's hope he does take care of his health. A great example that you must take care of yourself otherwise you are not much good to anyone (that's the health professional side of me).

Probably why he didn't show any interest in the gig in the first place. Sounds like this has been a lingering issue with The Urb, and he's probably making the right decision. He's only 45. I'm sure he'd like to live to tell his grandchildren about his coaching glory, wouldn't you think? One's mortality has a way of jolting you into reality.

Personally, I'm surprised we don't have more coaches keeling over of a coronary, with as much work as some of them do. Bill Belichek says he sleeps in his office like 5 days a week. It can't be a healthy lifestyle.

Good chance that if he gets his health together, he'll be back in the ranks of coaching some day, but I think he'll take at least a few years off, maybe get a broadcasting gig, and live to a ripe old age.

There is a rumor that he had a mild heart attack during this season. He may have a significant heart problem that the stress of being a coach of a top college football program can aggrivate. You try to run a multi-million dollar business where a few employees are paid well and most are getting no wages or in effect the minimum wage in a free education and housing, many 1000's of alumini and sports reporters bashing your every move, having to worry about nitpicking NCAA rules that control if you look at a player the wrong way, the hassles of recruting, taxpayers angry that you get maybe millions while they they are losing their houses and unemployment insurance - in the end why do it any longer. I bet he will end up with some broadcaster of college games, only have to work a few days a week, get well paid and no longer have to kill himself literally in his job.

When he was at Utah, Meyer had some interest in the ND job, but decided on Florida, instead. I'd be willing to bet that ND wouldn't be having the problems it is, if he had been coach instead of Weis.

According to ESPN's Chris Mortenson, Meyer will NOT resign from Florida. Rather he wiil take a leave of absence, while the offensive coordinator takes over as head coach. Once again, more details to follow

If he has heart issues I would think that it would be best for him to walk away and cut the cord. If there is an interim coach that means it's still his program, and no matter how much he tries to take himself out of the equation he will still obsess over it on a day to day basis,
