Urban Meyer is no longer a college football coach, but you can’t pull the three-time national champion completely away from the sport.
Saturday night, the Jacksonville Jaguars first-year head coach is taking in a college football game.
Meyer, who coached at Florida from 2005-10, winning two national championships, is back in Gainesville, Fla. on Saturday night.
Florida is set to host FAU on Saturday evening. It’s the season opener for the Gators.

Meyer was hanging out with former Gators head coach Steve Spurrier prior to kickoff on Saturday evening.
“First one here since I was the coach,” Meyer said as he hung out in Spurrier’s office at the Gators facility. “First one I had to drive in my own car.”

Meyer has a rare free weekend with the Jacksonville Jaguars off, so he took up an offer from the Gators to hang out with Spurrier and enjoy a game as a spectator. Spurrier attended a Jaguars practice last month and the two have crossed paths more often now that Meyer is back in Florida.
“Coach Spurrier, we’ve become good friends,” Meyer said. “Love hanging out with him.”
Meyer’s last game as coach at ‘The Swamp’ was the next-to-last regular season game of 2010. Florida defeated Appalachian State 48-10 on Nov. 20, 2010. Meyer led the Gators for six seasons and won two national titles.

Meyer, meanwhile, will open his first NFL season next Sunday, Sept. 12 against Houston.
