Urban Meyer Believes He Will Coach Again By 2010 Season

Florida coach Urban Meyer's indefinite leave of absence has grown a little less indefinite. During Sunday's press conference, he had this to say:

[...] Urban Meyer was asked if he felt he would be Florida's head coach come the fall of 2010.

Meyer's response was, "I do in my gut believe that will happen."

To recap: first it was reported that Meyer was retiring after the Sugar Bowl. Then it was speculated that he might return to coach college or professional football someday. On Sunday afternoon, it was reported that rather than resign, he would take an indefinite leave of absence. Now Meyer believes he will coach in fall 2010.

In short...if Meyer is to believed, he will only miss a couple of early-season games next season before returning to the team, and I doubt that he will remove himself entirely from recruiting or other off-season duties. There you have it.
