Is it for good this time or is he the Brett Favre of coaching?

If we do have "another Brett Favre", I hope it's interms of playing on the field, and not retirement and off field decisions.


Besides, he has two championship rings. He should resign for good....

Maybe he feels this is the right time to move to the NFL. The Broncos, (possibly) Dallas, Charlotte...and probably a few more before January. Lot's of opportunities for him if he want's to stay in football.

Coach Meyer is definitely one of the best coaches in the country so even if he's serious about staying away from football for a while, he will be get plenty of great offers if he decides to get back into coaching at some point.

Yeah, he will never be unemployed by choice. I give him two years before he's had enough "time with his family". The NFL is an interesting thought. I don't think his style will translate, but that hasn't stopped countless others from trying to make the leap.

Agreed. I would love to see the Broncos take a crack at him but I doubt that will happen. Meyer undoubtedly will take some time off, then take a look at the offers. He does have health issues, heart related issues. Am watching his press conference now, he is emphasizing family issues. He's only 46, he'll be coaching again.

Wow, I didnt expect for him to resign, but I suppose after attempting to leave last year and the bad season they had this year that it isn't a huge surprise.

Good luck to him, I suppose; it is good to see someone living a high-dollar lifestyle take a step back to give it up for their family.

When was they a mediocre team?

With 2 rings and 46 years old people need to understand the reason behindhis decision.

He has some health issues and still has young kids.

Once he gets his health under control and spends some time with his kids I can see him getting back into coaching in the future.

He is just way too good to be away from it.

I would like to see Spurrier back in Fla! Wont happen but that would be awesome.
