Meyer Plans on Coaching Gators for a While
"Yes, I am ready to dispel those rumors," Meyer said of the latest batch of nonsense about the once envious Notre Dame head coaching position. "I am going to be at the University of Florida as long as they will have me. I want to make that clear."
As usual, he didn't stay long on the subject as he likes to concentrate on the task at hand, winning a game against arch rival Florida State this week.
Still, Meyer will probably make more Gators fans smile when he shared his desire to have some of his former players take over for him when his time comes to leave the head coaching job at Florida. Tim Tebow will likely go down as the most celebrated college football player ever and Meyer never stops talking about his leadership. Meyer believes Tebow, senior linebacker Ryan Stamper, and junior defensive end Justin Trattou will be excellent coaches some day.
"It is probably my dream because I love this place so much and have sunk my heart into it," Meyer said. "Tebow and Stamper I guess I want around some day to lead this great program. That is every coach's dream to make a place a little better and leave it in great shape. Then hand it off to someone to carry on. I think Stamper will be one of the great coaches and another guy is Trattou, I think he will be a phenomenal coach."
For Gators it must be music to their ears. Meyer seemed to ring in the holiday season early and made it sound like one continuous holiday for Gator fans.
