Urban Meyer steps down at Florida. [Update: Taking a leave of absence.]

December 26, 2009

Five years and two National Championships for Urban Meyer in Gainesville and he has stepped down from one of the strongest programs in college football due to reported health concerns.

The health concerns are not immediate, but Meyer did acknowledge his health has been neglected during his tenure at Florida. Meyer was admitted to a hospital for dehydration after the SEC Championship game, one in which the Gators lost to Alabama, and he has apparently been weighing his decisions since that incident.

Meyer was cited as a possible replacement for Charlie Weis at Notre Dame earlier this month, but said he would stay at Florida as long as they would have him. It now seems Florida will need to work on finding their own replacement for Meyer.

Meyer will coach the Gators in the Sugar Bowl vs Cincinnati on New Years Day.

We here at The Nine Commandments wish Meyer the best in the future as he battles whatever ails him.

[Update 12/28/09: Meyer has decided simply to take a leave of absence. Offensive coordinator Steve Addazio will be taking over the head coaching next season.]
