Urban Meyer Health Issues?

Urban Meyer announced he was stepping down as Florida's head coach due to family reasons, but he didn't acknowledge that health was an issue. But I've been hearing a lot of rumors about Urban Meyer's health problems.

Coach Urban Meyer was sent out a winner by his University of Florida Gators in today's Outback Bowl at Raymond James Stadium.

After all the success Meyer has enjoyed in his six seasons at Florida, he deserved to go out a winner, especially given everything that went wrong this season.

What is Urban Meyer's current health condition? Is he having a problem with his heart?

Urban Meyer has been having some health problems. According to the AP, Meyer has a "recurring burning sensation in his chest" that doctors warned him could lead to cardiovascular issues if he continued to coach. A person with knowledge of his situation told the AP that Meyer's chest pain needs "constant monitoring."

Urban Meyer allegedly toned down his legendary intensity to enhance his health condition during the 2010 season, getting more exercise and eating better.

Issues involving Meyer’s health first arose last December, when the coach was rushed to the hospital following his team’s loss to Alabama in the Southeastern Conference championship game.

Meyer originally quit the UF job over concerns that he thought were heart related then decided to take his job back a day later. Examinations and tests revealed he actually had a throat problem.
