GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Florida coach Urban Meyer says he is
leaving one of the premier jobs in college football for the second
time to spend more time with his family.

In a news conference on the Gainesville, Fla., campus, Meyer
says he wants to prioritize being a husband and father.

The 46-year-old coach led Florida to two national titles but
briefly resigned last December, citing health concerns, but
returned the next day. He had been hospitalized with chest pains
after the Gators lost to Alabama in last season's Southeastern
Conference championship game.

This time, he says, it's completely different.

Florida finished 7-5, the worst record of Meyer's 10-year head
coaching career, which began at Bowling Green.
