Urban Meyer Stepping Down at Florida...Again

In an announcement that spread like wildfire across the internet early Wednesday afternoon, Florida head coach Urban Meyer announced that he was resigning his position in Gainesville after six seasons. 

Meyer famously announced after last season that he was quitting for health reasons only to recant his resignation days later. This time, however, Meyer appears to be for real saying he would like to focus on "family and life away from the field."

Immediate speculation surfaced that Meyer's resignation may signal interest in the Denver Broncos' vacant head coaching job with a chance to re-unite with his surrogate son former player Tim Tebow, however those rumors were quickly shot down.

Now the rumor mill begins to turn about who becomes the next head Gator. The spotlight immediately lands on Dan Mullen, the former Florida offensive coordinator and current Mississippi State head coach. But you can expect other major names to surface for a job that has become one of the most coveted in the country.

Meyer says he will stay on and coach the team in the upcoming Outback Bowl.
