Gotta love the silly season of SEC football. Rumors, rumors everywhere and not a fact to find.
Yesterday, reports began to connect Florida offensive coordinator Steve Addazio to the head coaching vacancy at Indiana. (Today, reports have the IU job going to Oklahoma offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson.)
Most Gator fans danced for joy at the prospects of Addazio hittin’ the road.
Then came reports that Urban Meyer and Oklahoma State offensive coordinator Dana Holgorsen were already engaged in talks that would bring the Cowboys’ coach to Gainesville.
By yesterday afternoon, Florida radio host (and CSS analyst) Brady Ackerman tweeted that he’d spoken to Holgorsen and that Holgorsen had said he’d had no talks with Meyer about coming to Florida.
But yesterday morning — at about the time all those other rumors started to swirl — those who were listening in on an Outback Bowl teleconference heard Meyer once again say that Addazio would likely be back in Gainesville next season.
“I am expecting that to happen,” Meyer said. “I’ll have further updates as we get closer to the bowl game. Everybody’s out recruiting and doing their business. At this time, I can’t make any statements because there’s so much going on with the profession right now.”
So Meyer “expects” Addazio to return but he’s not willing to guarantee it. At least not now.
Perhaps that was because Addazio was still in the running for the Indiana job.
Or perhaps Meyer stopped short of a guarantee for other reasons…
