According to a report in The Gainesville Sun, Urban Meyer resigned from the Florida Gators' head coaching position due to health risks.

Sun writer Pat Dooley wrote that the source said Meyer faced increased cardiovascular risk if he continued to coach.

Apparently, Meyer was experiencing certain symptoms (which included burning sensations in his chest) that doctors said would increase his "cardiovascular risk factors."

A year ago, when Meyer first resigned in late December 2009, he was told that these symptoms would persist and deteriorate his health if he continued to coach.

As a result, Meyer came to the conclusion that is was best for him and his family to resign as Florida's head football coach.

Meyer held his resignation press conference Wednesday and athletic director Jeremy Foley wasted no time in finding his successor, hiring Texas defensive coordinator Will Muschamp Saturday night.
