urbanmeyer See Ya Later Gators, Urban Meyer Resigns

TMZ just reported the Urban Meyer has stepped down as head coach of the Florida Gators…AGAIN.  “It is time to put my focus on my family and life away from the field.”  Urban will still coach the Outback Bowl against Penn State on New Year’s Day.

Here is part of the statement released by the University:

“I have been a Division I football coach for the last 25 years and, during that time, my primary focus has been helping my teams win titles. I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it, and I am a fierce competitor to my core. At this time in my life, however, I appreciate the sacrifices my 24/7 profession has demanded of me, and I know it is time to put my focus on my family and life away from the field. The decision to step down was a difficult one.

“But after spending more than two decades motivating and celebrating the young men I’ve been so proud to coach, I relish the opportunity to cheer for my three terrific kids as they compete in their own respective sports. I know how fortunate I am to be in a position to make this choice and to have a family that is as loving and supportive as my amazing wife and children have always been.”
