Billy Gonzales stuck it to Urban Meyer with a "sticky note"

He could have slipped out the back, Jack. Or made a new plan, Stan. But former Florida assistant coach Billy Gonzales told Urban Meyer he was leaving his longtime boss to take a similar job at LSU in a way Paul Simon could never had imagined. He used a "sticky note."  (That's a Post-it note or some knockoff thereof, just in case you weren't sure what's being talked about here) Gonzales apparently wasn't too happy that he got passed over for the Gator offensive coordinator job that went to Steve Addazio.
Okay. maybe wasn't that original of a way to leave a longtime boss. But it does show how strained the relationship between Meyer and Gonzales had become with Addazio's promotion. And it's now getting attention due to Florida's offensive struggles, along with LSU's more-lucky-than-good 5-0 record.
