The news hit the college football world like a hurricane.
Urban Meyer, Florida's successful head coach, stepped down at 45 years old amid concerns about his health.
Soon after this was announced, many articles here on Bleacher Report have come up talking about possible replacements for Meyer.
I doubt that Florida Athletic Director Jeremy Foley will make the "Ron Zook mistake" again by hiring a first-time head coach, so forget about seeing Charlie Strong and Will Muschamp on this slideshow.
I also think that Foley will look for a coach from the college ranks, so you won't find Jon Gruden and Mike Shanahan on here anywhere either.
So, from a Florida fan's perspective, these are three candidates that I think would be the best fits for Florida (in no particular order).
