Just under a year ago, Meyer announced that he would resign as Florida’s head coach due to health and family concerns following the Gators’ trashing of Cincinnati in the Sugar Bowl. But he changed his mind a day later and decided to take an indefinite leave of absence, with the thought that he would return for the 2010 regular season.
He did return, but the Gators struggled to a 7-5 overall record, which included a 4-4 mark in conference play. Without Tim Tebow, Florida finished 85th overall in passing yards, 44th in rushing and 48th in points for.
On Wednesday, the University of Florida announced that Meyer will step down as head coach of the Gators. No official reason has been given yet, but chances are Meyer is burned out and could need some time away from the game.
Of course, that hasn’t stopped some from speculating about his future. The internet is already buzzing about him possibly uniting with Tebow in Denver. The Broncos fired head coach Josh McDaniels on Monday and seeing as how Tebow is regarded as the future in Denver, why not reunite him with the head coach that he had so much success with at Florida?
Granted, that seems a little too perfect at the moment. Chances are Meyer won’t be coaching anytime soon, although nothing should be ruled out at this point. You just never know when it comes to college football head coaches and their future intentions.
