ESPN.com has posted an extremely long, yet fascinating article looking at Urban Meyer’s journey to be an engaged family man while coaching at big-time college football program.
You may remember that the dad of three quit as the head coach of the Florida Gators in 2010 saying he needed to spend more time with his family. But about a year later he accepted the head coach position at Ohio State University.
I couldn’t figure out what happened? Had he spent enough time with his family? Was he bored at home?
ESPN.com writes that during that year he was on a quest of self-discovery. He wanted to remember why he started coaching and how he could pull back from perfection in football to be a coach, dad and husband.
The story explains that before signing his contract with Ohio State, he had to sign a contract with his family.
