Urban Meyer almost resigned from Florida earlier this year but that lasted just one day and was for health reasons.

This time he is resigning because he wants to be a better husband and father. He has two daughters playing Division I volleyball and wants to see them.

The 46-year-old Toledo, Ohio native leaves coaching with an impressive resume’. He has a 103-23 record, a winning percentage of .817, 64-15 at Florida, a 6-1 Bowl record and two national championships. He rebuilt the football programs at Bowling Green State University in Ohio (17-6 record) and at the University of Utah (22-2 record).

Meyer is walking away from about $20 million in guaranteed salary. But Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley did agree to pay Meyer a $1 million retention bonus the coach would’ve received if he were employed on January 31, 2011.

The Florida Gators struggled during the 2010 season and were near the bottom of the Southeastern Conference in every offensive category and finished at 7-5. Florida will play in the Outback Bowl in Tampa, Florida on January 1, 2011 against the Penn State Nittany Lions who were likewise, 7-5.
