"I have given my heart and soul to coaching college football and mentoring young men for the last 24-plus years and I have dedicated most of my waking moments the last five years to the Gator football program," said Meyer. "I have ignored my health for years, but recent developments have forced me to re-evaluate my priorities of faith and family."
Huge developments for football programs across the nation.
UPDATE: Urban Meyer to take indefinite leave of absence
@GatorBenPBP - "A PB County high school football coach said a Florida staffer called him and told him about Meyer's change of heart"
@GatorBenPBP - "This is not a joke: Hearing that Urban told the players an hour ago that he changed his mind and is only taking a leave of absence"
@PeteThamelNYT - Steve Addazio just told me in a telephone interview that he'll be the interim coach during Meyer's indef "leave of absence."
