Former Florida coach Urban Meyer will be joining ESPN’s college football team as a regular analyst for the network. He will work weekly regular-season games and provide studio analysis for “College Football Live” and “College GameDay” according to ESPN’s website.
And that’s great news for the Florida football program.
The idea of Meyer staying around campus, having an office, and dropping by practice sounded nice at Will Muschamp’s introductory presser, but no new coach wants the old coach hanging around and looking over his shoulder. Players upset with Muschamp might try to drop by Meyer’s office for advice or a shoulder to cry on. Not good. Now that likely won’t be a problem.
“Coach Meyer brings a fresh voice and a contemporary knowledge of the game,” said Norby Williamson, ESPN’s executive VP for production. “As he showed during BCS coverage, his ability to communicate the strategic aspects of the game and his incredible track record for success will serve college football fans everywhere.”
