GAINESVILLE - Florida football coach Urban Meyer is stepping down after the Gators appearance in the Outback Bowl.

Meyer led Florida to two national titles but began to show the strain of his high-profile job last season when he briefly quit but then returned to the team.

In a statement released by the university Wednesday, Meyer says "it is time to put my focus on my family and life away from the field."

He says the decision to resign was "a difficult one."
