Gators steal Urban Meyer from ND!?


this from espn....

The University of Florida has offered its coaching job to Urban Meyer, who accepted today, ESPN.com's Pat Forde has learned.

Florida papers reported the offer to Meyer, who has coached Utah to a 12-0 season and a BCS bowl bid, on their Web sites Friday morning.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++

The Backer told me about the possibility of Meyer to ND when we went to the BC game in October. But it looks as though the Gators have robbed the cradle...

So who will take Ty's place now...?

Jon Gruden?

''I love Notre Dame. I went to high school there. My dad coached Joe Montana and Vagas Ferguson there. I'm not a candidate for that job. I've got the best job in football and I've got to work hard to keep it. I wish Notre Dame well, I'll always be a big fan, but I guarantee I'm no candidate for that job.''
