It only got worse as Harvin’s career progressed. At one point during the 2008 season, multiple sources confirmed that Harvin, now a prominent member of the Minnesota Vikings, physically attacked wide receivers coach Billy Gonzales, grabbing him by the neck and throwing him to the ground. Harvin had to be pulled off Gonzales by two assistant coaches—but was never disciplined. When asked about the Harvin incident, Gonzales—now offensive coordinator at Illinois—said, "I think it’s a little overblown. I mean, every great player wants his voice to be heard." Said Meyer: "Something did happen and something was handled. I don’t think it’s fair to Percy Harvin or Billy Gonzales to talk about it."

Urban Meyer's tenure at Florida gets autopsied in a Sporting News bombshell by Matt Hayes that we're going to have to discuss in further detail when I'm not leaving for class in a few minutes, and the story of Percy Harvin choking former Florida wide receivers coach Billy Gonzales (who would later leave for LSU and announce it by leaving his keys, cell phone, and a letter of resignation on Meyer's desk) is the crux of a story about drug use, discipline problems, and shady leadership. It paints Meyer in a terrible, terrible light. But remember this: Urban Meyer's no longer the coach at Florida.
