Report: Meyer changes plans, taking leave of absence

From Miami Herald:

NEW ORLEANS -- Change of plans. Florida coach Urban Meyer isn't going anywhere.

Meyer informed his football team on Sunday that he is not resigning but rather taking an indefinite leave of absence, according to a team source.

Meyer also informed the football team that offensive coordinator Steve Addazio will be the Gators' interim head coach. A timetable has not been set for Meyer's return but he could resume his position as UF head coach as soon as next season.

Citing concerns for his health and family, Meyer announced his resignation Saturday but said he would remain in Gainesville and continue to be involved with the university.

Meyer has an arachnoid cyst on his brain, which can become inflamed from stress or excitement. When inflamed, the cyst has caused Meyer considerable pain.
