College Football Coaching News
Sunday, 2009 December 27 - 10:56 am
For those of you who are college football fans, you probably did a spit-take with your coffee this morning upon hearing that Urban Meyer is resigning as head coach of Florida. Meyer, one of the most successful coaches in the game, is stepping down due to concerns over a heart condition. Florida now faces a potentially difficult transition year, as they'll have a new coach and a new quarterback. Michigan fans know a little something about that.

That's now three premier football programs that will have new head coaches next year: Notre Dame, which has hired Brian Kelly from Cincinnati; Florida State, which has promoted Jimbo Fisher to replace retiring Bobby Bowden; and now, Florida. If Florida steals Bob Stoops away from Oklahoma (Bob Stoops was a former Florida defensive coordinator under Steve Spurrier), that'll make four.

Lots of names are being batted around as Meyer's replacement, including Boise State's Chris Petersen, Utah's Kyle Whittingham, Arkansas' Bobby Petrino, former Denver Broncos coach Mike Shanahan, Mississippi State's Dan Mullen (a former Meyer defensive coordinator), and Charlie Strong (Meyer's offensive coordinator, who just accepted the head coaching job at Louisville). I personally think Whittingham is the best choice here. Florida will need to move quickly, as the critical part of the recruiting season looms.

I wasn't a big Meyer fan; I found him a bit smug at times, and I resented the fact that he seemed to receive the credit for wins that came of the back of Tim Tebow. But you have to respect the success he's achieved and the work he's put into his job. So with all sincerity, good luck, Mr. Meyer, and I hope you get well soon.

Ahh, Meyer has flip-flopped. He's decided to take an "indefinite leave of absence" instead of retiring. Interesting.
