Brett McMurphy of AOL FanHouse (@brettmcmurphy) tweets that Urban Meyer will resign as head coach at Florida during a 5pm eastern press conference today.

No additional details are available at this time. It was last December when Meyer had a short-lived “retirement.” reports Vanderbilt coach Robbie Caldwell has announced his resignation. The Commodores are 2-9 this season and play Wake Forest today. Caldwell was the interim coach at Vandy when Bobby Johnson unexpectedly resigned over the summer.

Marc Weiszer of the Athens Banner-Herald writes that Georgia AD Greg McGarity said he expects Mark Richt to be back next season saying before yesterday’s Georgia-Auburn game, “Sure I do,” McGarity said. “Absolutely… I fully expect Mark Richt to be with us for awhile… Based on the first 10 games, there’s no question about that.”

Richt laughed when asked about his name coming up with the Colorado job, saying: “Georgia’s my home.”

Richt, under contract through the end of the 2013 season, is 95-33 in 10 seasons at Georgia.

Jeff Lockridge of The Nashville Tennessean writes that Vanderbilt coach Robbie Caldwell could be out of a job, even if the Commodores (2-7, 1-5 SEC) win their final three games vs. Kentucky, Tennessee and Wake Forest. Caldwell was promoted to head coach when Bobby Johnson unexpectedly resigned over the summer.

Jerry Tipton of the Lexington Herald Leader writes that Arkansas coach John Pelphrey is on the hot seat. The Razorbacks have gone 9-23 in the SEC during two seasons and attendance figures at Bud Walton Arena are dwindling.

“I don’t really think of that,” Pelphrey said at the SEC Media Day on Thursday. “That’s not something that goes into the equation. I believe we are making progress.”

Pelphrey noted the growing number of media outlets and the avenues for fans to voice opinions leads to less patience in rebuilding situations.
