Urban Meyer to Florida: See Ya Later, Gators

12/8/2010 4:18 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Urban Meyer has just stepped down as the head football coach at the University of Florida ... where he won two national championships since he took the job in 2005.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

It's unclear why Meyer quit the Florida gig -- but his most famous alum, Tim Tebow, is now coachless over in Denver.

We're just sayin ...

Even though I am from the Pacific NW and a UW Husky fan all the way, I have become a Gator fan in recent years. Even went to the FL v Geo annual get-together in Jacksonville in 2006, when Tebow was a freshman. Urban would put him in for the running plays, he was/is such a broozer! Actually got to see a Heisman winner!
If Urban does go to Denver, who used to be in Seattle's division and we HATED them, I will now root for the Broncos! Sorta shuttered saying that.... lol

Don't worry folks, TMZ will soon give you updates about the MLB Winter Meetings. Guess it must be a slow day over at Vivid Entertainment.

If he goes to Denver then he is a piece of crap....he says he is quiting to be with his kids...which I'm trying to be understanding about. And since UF is the best football team it is understandable why TMZ posted this... :)

The last time a Gator coach bolted for an NFL team, it didn't turn out so good. (Lookin' at you, Steve Spurrier.)
