TWO BITS: Urban Meyer health update

1 » Speaking with Florida Gators interim head coach, offensive coordinator and offensive line coach Steve Addazio, Peter Kerasotis of Florida Today picked his brain about his new role with the team and the time frame for a potential return by head coach Urban Meyer. “He will be back,” Addazio said when asked if Meyer will be able to return. “Definitely. He’s made that clear. He’s doing great. There’s no timetable, but I’m guessing he’ll be back sooner rather than later. I see him all the time, and he just looks great.”

2 » While in attendance at the American Football Coaches Association Convention in Orlando, FL, Jeremy Fowler of the Orlando Sentinel caught up with ESPN college football analyst and former head coach Lou Holtz about Meyer’s health. (The two are close friends.) “[Meyer is] pretty good, and he’s feeling good,” Holtz said. “I think as long as his health is OK – that’s the whole concern he has. As long as that’s under control, I think he’ll be absolutely fine [in 2010]. He’s a great person and a great football coach, and he’s done a marvelous job everywhere he’s been.”

    This, as well as Franz Beard’s article at Gator Country he posted last night, should dispel all these ridiculous rumors floating around about Coach Meyer’s health. Great news to hear, and I have every reason to believe that he’ll be back later this year.

  5. O-town, I agree. I was skeptical at first but have since come around.
