In the span of four years, Urban Meyer managed to go from Bowling Green, to Utah, to the Florida Gators. He has had success with each of these universities.
Meyer coached Utah to an undefeated season in 2004. This Utah team was the first team in a non-BCS conference to make a BCS Bowl game.
Meyer has coached in four BCS Bowl games and has won them all. Two of these games were BCS National Championships, both victories for his Gators.
In terms of success, Meyer is the most successful coach in the BCS era. Meyer's record as a college coach was 104-23 with an astonishing .819 winning percentage. Meyer was also 7-1 in bowl games.
A lot of people may argue Meyer being at the top, but with the amount that Meyer has accomplished, with only ten seasons as a head coach, is very impressive. Although he didn't quite leave at the top, after struggling in 2010, however much time he decides to take off is quite deserved.
