Florida assistants take 'nonnegotiable' physicals

Urban Meyer made it nonnegotiable for his assistants to take physicals. 

The tests included blood panels, stress tests, and physicals.

"I've had ridiculous amounts of correspondence or people who have, because of what happened, said, 'You know what, I'm going to get checked out,'" Meyer said. "I made our staff; it's nonnegotiable.We're going to take this day and we're going to take care of some business here."

"I think coaches have been brought up in an environment to just work through everything, just go work a little harder, as opposed to let's take advantage of these great resources here at Florida and make sure everybody's all right."
