While the details are still extremely sketchy right now, the most stunning story of the 2009 college football season — and perhaps this decade — is in the process of going down.
Urban Meyer is stepping down as Florida’s head coach.
According to the report during the Meineke Car Care Bowl between Pittsburgh and North Carolina, athletic director Jeremy Foley has announced that Meyer’s run as coach is coming to an end.
There has been no explanation given as to why Meyer is leaving, or whether he will coach the Gators in the Sugar Bowl against Cincinnati. Meyer is expected to meet with the media to discuss this absolutely stunning turn of events.
Shortly after the SEC Championship game loss to Alabama, Meyer admitted himself to a Gainesville hospital for what was described as dehydration. At this point in time, there’s no indication that Meyer’s health played a role in this decision.
Obviously, we’ll have more on this shocking twist as the details become available.
