Former UF coach Urban Meyer and former UM coach Randy Shannon saw their careers as heads of two of Florida's big three college football teams come to an end after this season for very different reasons, but they both appear to be headed to the same place: ESPN of course. Meyer, who won two national championships, is getting a permanent gig, while Shannon, who didn't even muster a conference title, is getting a temporary gig, at least for now.
"I see a lot of guys, they go around when they're out of coaching, see spring practices, see spring games, and they stay involved that way,"Shannon told the AP
. "You see how people develop and things like that. I'm making a transition. But I want to still be involved. With me, it's still fun to be around football. You watch games, you make a comment on this or that. That's fun."
