Jim McElwain releases statement on Twitter on leaving Colorado State for Florida

Yes, McElwain is a coach leaving his team before its bowl game. But as these sorts of departures go, McElwain's way of walking out the door — which also reportedly included a 9:15 a.m. meeting with his players in Fort Collins on Thursday — strikes me as a pretty dignified way to do it.
