Urban Meyer Steps Down at Florida

Urban Meyer is 45 years old.  We are the same age.  But at a tie where you are in your prime for most any occupation, Urban Meyer is stepping down as coach of Florida.  Why?

It seems that health concerns have played the major part of this decision.  As an additional benefit, his kids “get their dad back.”

I spent 6 years as a high school basketball coach.  The pressure is nowhere near what a Division 1 football coach at the level that Meyer is faced.  It sounds like he already has a condition that is exacerbated by the pressures of big-time college football.

It takes a strong person to walk away at a young age while you’re at the top.  Jim Brown, Sandy Koufax, and Urban Meyer.

Good fr you, Coach.  Enjoy your kids and your life.
