Not Done Yet: Meyer Considering Returning Per ESPN

This is about to get even more interesting than anyone could imagine. Not only is Urban Meyer thinking about simply taking a leave of absence, he would leave every Florida fan's favorite offensive coordinator in charge.

Under a plan being discussed, Florida offensive coordinator Steve [Addazio] would coach the Gators in the Sugar Bowl. Meyer, who cited health concerns as the reason for his retirement, would take a leave of absence and return to the team before the 2010 season.

However, a source close to the program told ESPN senior NFL analyst Chris Mortensen that Meyer would take a leave of absence for the entirety of the 2010 season. [Addazio] would take over as interim coach for the season.

The former would not be the worst scenario you could come up with Florida; the latter would. Not only would the program face the uncertainty that would come from a leave of absence, but the doubt would stretch across an entire season. And we know how recruits love uncertainty.

Not to mention that few think Adazzio has handled the transition from offensive line coach to coordinator well; he would almost have to hire an offensive line coach and a coordinator for the 2010 season, but who would take the job on an interim basis?
