Urban Meyer resigns as Florida's head coach

I know this isn't breaking anymore, but I've been away from the computer and haven't had time to update today's shocking announcement that he will retire due to health concerns. 

First and foremost, my thoughts and prayers go out to Meyer and his family. Here's hoping it is nothing too serious and he's able to live a long and productive life - even if off the football field.

Secondly, this impacts Utah because Kyle Whittingham surely will be floated around as a candidate for the job. Whittingham coached along side Meyer here at Utah, followed him after he left for Florida and is a proven winner. Moreover, he is one of Meyer's closest confidants who might back such a move. 

Right now, though, we can only speculate. The most major aspect of this story, however, is Meyer's health and hopefully he gets that under control.
