Meyer says UF is "Dream Job"!
Gator Football Head Coach Urban Meyer wants to reassure Florida fans of his commitment to he Gators.Â Tuesday after practice, Meyer told media the University of Florida head football coaching job is his "dream job." "Our staff has given our life to Florida football for four years," Meyer said following the team's first bowl practice. "We plan on giving our life to Florida football for a long, long time.Â You start hearing, 'Well coach, I thought you said (Notre Dame was) your dream job.' I grew up in the North and that was my dream job.Â "This is my dream job. This is my job. I hope to be here for a long, long time. I hear that out there and it's my fault. But this is everything I want in a school. This is the best job in America.Â You don't give your life to a school like our whole staff has. We plan on doing this for a long time."
Meyer spurned Notre Dame in 2004, instead choosing to move from Utah to Florida. He won a national championship in his second season and will play for another one next month in the Bowl Championship Series national title game in Miami.
Meyer signed a seven-year, $3.25 million extension after the 2006 championship. But he made it clear during the radio interview that returning Notre Dame - he was an assistant there from 1996 to 2000 - was still a possibility.
