Re: Urban Meyer stepping down as Florida coach
I have never been a big fan of Urban Meyer's. I think for the most part he has run a "winning is the only thing that matters" program and Tebow has masked multiple arrests and the beginnings of a rogue program. It is even more disturbing that Dunlap (I believe) is allowed to play in the bowl game after what he did. But back to the major issue.
What makes most successful college coaches great is their ability to flip the switch on and off. It sounds as if Urban can't do that. He has sacrificed his health and his family in order to become a prime time coach. What really struck me is is daughter saying something to the effect of "now I get my daddy back" and then Tebow saying "he was like a second father to me". Its shocking, but not all that unexpected, that Urban would have a better relationship with his QB than his own family.
I fully respected his decision to move away from the game and become a better father and more healthy. I do see this flip flopping as Urban being a "drama queen" which isn't all that unprecedented with him. I hope he makes the right decision for himself and his family first. The UF football program isn't going anywhere and will survive if they have to hire another football coach.
