    i just heard that as well. I wonder if it's because of something inappropriate or if he's headed to the NFL. (which would be a mistake in my opinion)

    Better to jump ship than watch it sink. Got 2 titles, Tebow is gone....what's next? NFL.

    He's been a huge success with the Florida program. His health should come first. He can walk away and say he did a great job.

    That'll be a huge job for somebody.

    Doesn't take long. From Rivals

    If they are going to interview anyone with a bowl game to play, I REALLY hope they wait until after the games. The whole Notre Dame / Brian Kelly made me sick to my stomach. Those kids at Cincinnati deserved better.

    pretty crazy situation.

    also, this is easily the most coveted open coaching position in sports right now.

    Id love to see Boise State coach Chris Petersen get it. Seems like a great guy and has been nearly flawless at Boise.

    Id like to see his offense with those super athletes in Florida.

    Yep...it would be a great fit, reminiscent of the fun-and-gun Spurrier days.

    The talent they have on the team already combined with recent tradition combined with an amazing recruiting base combined with the slipping of Florida State the past few years combined with elite facilities and budget.

    Yeah, I'd say it's the best job available. It's a better job than the ND job.
