GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Here is Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley's statement regarding Ohio State's hire of former Florida coach Urban Meyer:

“We will always be indebted to Urban Meyer and his contributions to the University of Florida. He elevated our program, winning multiple national championships and made a strong impact in this community. Over the past 11 months, he has clearly had an opportunity to determine that now is the right time to return to coaching.

“He is good for college football and we knew he would return to the sidelines to coach again. We wish nothing but the best for him and his family as he embarks on a new chapter in his career.”
