Urban Meyer Resigns As Florida Football Coach (Again)

According to FanHouse's Brett McMurphy, Urban Meyer is stepping down as the head coach to the University of Florida's football team. (Yes, again.) The official announcement is expected to come in a press conference at 5 p.m. EST Wednesday evening. 

If reports are true, this would not be the first time that Meyer has stepped down. Last December, Meyer announced he would resign as Florida's head coach following a health scare earlier in the month (Meyer went to the hospital with chest pains and was released later the same day on Dec. 6). At the time, he said, "I have ignored my health for years, but recent developments have forced me to re-evaluate my priorities of faith and family."

However, the next day, Meyer changed his attitude and his resignation became just a leave of absence. He coached the Gators in the Sugar Bowl on Jan . 1, a win over Cincinnati, and by March 17, he has completely resumed his duties as Florida's head coach. 

Meyer took over at Florida in 2005 after two years at Utah. He led the Gators to two national championships, in 2006 and then again in 2008.
