Urban Meyer is stepping down and leaving Florida!Â The head coach of the Florida Gators is leaving Florida because of “health reasons”, although the exact health reason has not yet been announced.
Urban Meyer had a great career with the Gators.Â His 5 seasons yielded 56 wins and 10 losses.Â Next year will be interesting for the Swamp, as both Tim Tebow and Urban Meyer will be gone.
Meyer will still coach the Sugar Bowl game on January 1st. That will also be Tim Tebow’s last game.
Urban Meyer said the following in a statement to ESPN:
“IÂ have given my heart and soul to coaching college football and mentoring young men for the last 24-plus years and I have dedicated most of my waking moments the last five years to the Gator football program. I have ignored my health for years, but recent developments have forced me to reevaluate my priorities of faith and family.â€
What’s next for the Gators? What’s next for coach Urban Meyer and quarterback Tim Tebow? Only time will tell.
