Urban Meyer is a great coach, and not having a personal relationship with the man, I cannot attest to anything more than that.
He appears to have a great love for his family, as he should, and also to enjoy what he does.
However, it has to be mildly concerning to players that he bailed on Florida.
If he had stayed retired for longer than a season, it might be easier to digest. But he left the program after an extremely successful run there, so why should we believe something such as this will not happen again?
Who is to say that the stress of the Ohio State job, arguably even more profile, won't cause some health issues, or a sudden retirement?
While this is not an issue that should make a player not want to play for Meyer, who is one of the best in the game, the thought should at least cross his mind.
Meyer is also notoriously soft on players with off-field issues, which is bad for character development.
