    ESPN.com news services
    <!-- template inline --><!-- insertinlineAd --> The University of Florida has offered its coaching job to Urban Meyer, who accepted today, ESPN.com's Pat Forde has learned.

    <!-- BEGIN INLINE UNIT --> <iframe src="http://adsatt.espn.go.com/ad/sponsors/utilities/espn/adslug_120_160.html" width="1" height="12" frameborder="0" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" scrolling="no" align="middle"></iframe>


    <!-- END INLINE UNIT --> Florida papers reported the offer to Meyer, who has coached Utah to a 12-0 season and a BCS bowl bid, on their Web sites Friday morning.

    "It could be any minute," UF president Dr. Bernie Machen told The Palm Beach Post earlier today. "I'm waiting for an e-mail."

    When asked about the report, Utah athletic director Chris Hill, deferred.

    "My position is to let the other parties in these things -- the schools and the coach -- speak for themselves," Hill said. "Any kind of confirmation would have to come from other sources."

    When pressed, Hill offered no further comment.

    Meyer met with his players Thursday and told them what schools are pursuing him, but he would not be specific when asked about the meeting.

    "There's too many things involved right now to have any comments," Meyer said after a practice at Utah's new indoor practice field.

    Florida officials were in Utah on Thursday, as were Notre Dame officials.

    Meyer will replace Ron Zook, who was fired but coached the team through the end of the season.

    The Utah coach has said he wants to coach the Utes in their bowl game. Zook has not yet decided whether he will coach the Gators in the Peach Bowl.

    Utah is expected to consider members of its current staff to replace Meyer.

    I pretty much think its a done deal now....its a good fit for him and the school, he will have immediate success down there.

    SEC is a tough conference, lets see what he can do with Leak at quarterback, it could be scary.
