Urban Meyer was the most influential coach in college football this decade.
He was one of the pioneers in running the spread offense at Bowling Green from 2001-02.
He delivered an unbeaten, BCS-busting season at Utah in 2004 that helped pave the way for what has become an annual crush of non-traditional teams at the championship-system gates.
He then resuscitated Florida to the tune of two BCS titles in five seasons. That stretch included winning a recruiting war for the decade’s most iconic player, Tim Tebow, whose unique skill-set Meyer used deftly.
