Chucky And Urban Meyer’s Resignation

December 26th, 2009
You fing right Id like to move to Gainesville and coach the Gators. Imagine how I could ruin Scot Brantleys nephew?

"You f'ing right I'd like to move to Gainesville and coach the Gators. Imagine how I could ruin Scot Brantley's nephew?"

Though Joe doubts it, he’s already gotten texts and seen on Twitter Chucky’s name floated as a replacement for Florida coach Urban Meyer who shocked the football world earlier tonight by resigning as coach of the Florida Gators.

Joe doubts Chucky will go to Gainesville. But Meyer’s decision could effect Chucky.

Florida is behind the eight ball in a number of ways now. First, all the top candidates have already been hired. Second, this throws the recruiting process for the Gators in a mess.

If you are a recruit in Florida, look at what is going on? One coach may be on thin ice (Randy Shannon), another program just lost its best coach (Meyer), a third program may have to fire its coach (Jim Leavitt).

The only “stable” coach in the state of Florida is a guy who has never been a head coach before. Wow, how quick things change.

Anyway, Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley once made a run at Mike Shanahan. If Shanahan were to take that job, that means there are two jobs with Chucky acolytes running an NFL organization: Cleveland and Washington.

This will be very interesting to see how the dominoes fall once Foley picks a replacement.

If Joe was Foley, he’d go after, in order, Kyle Whittingham (a Meyer disciple and a man who knows how to beat Bama), Tommy Tuberville (who knows the SEC) and Butch Davis (who knows how to win and recruit in the state of Florida).

Who would have thought a month ago that both Bobby Bowden and Meyer would leave their respective programs on the same day?

    I think Gruden could gain alot from coaching college football. His biggest weakness as a HC is that he seemed to lack the ability to work with young inexperienced guys and help them grow as football players and as men. Something Tony Dungy excells at. While Gruden loves the game of football and is a great OC, he always seem to want old vets that already knew what to do. He could grow alot as a coach by learning how to have patients and develope some mentoring skills with young players.

    Just my opinion, but I’d like to see Chucky coach college when he decides to get back in the game.

    Jdub, those are the exact reasons why Chucky probably wouldn’t make a good college coach. What AD would want to hire a guy that has no patience with young players.

    Gruden would make an excellent college coach… relationship with great players, 3 years, 100 man roster, a football game where talent mismatches are easy if you are te top dog…..Gruden is available and this might just blind side him and catch him off guard and say yes…..that and he and Monte can finally go head to head….instead of sand drawings at Mad Beach
    BTW… time stamp on the prediction

    I think Chris Petersen from Boise State would be worth taking a look at for the Florida job.

    Ol Ball Coach – Spurrier could be back. Bob Stoops would be a good candidate too.

    Hey guys anyone think about the Glazers offering Meyer a shot at the HC job here in Tampa? Maybe if the Bucs draft Tebow in the 4th round then ask Urban to consider the Tampa job?

    I wonder if Charlie Strong would consider taking the HC job at Gainesville? I know he’s scheduled to go somewhere else but…
