GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Florida coach Urban Meyer is working out regularly, eating better and has gained 20 pounds since the end of the season — all good news for the Gators.
As for that leave of absence?
Well, it might not even happen.
Meyer, speaking publicly for the first time since Florida beat Cincinnati 51-24 in the Sugar Bowl, says his workload has been about the same during the recruiting season as it has been in other years. He also says he plans to coach the Gators during spring practice.
Meyer says athletic director Jeremy Foley and his wife, Shelley, want him to take some time off after signing day next month. But Meyer says he hasn’t made any plans to step away.
