Ignore all the stupid trash talking in the link.  But there is a link to the bank's website with the Zooker way down on the right.  The dude is a multi-millionaire....seems odd??

http://www.thesports..._medium=twitter

Ron Zook got a $2.6 million dollar buyout from the University of Illinois. Ron Zook made a lot of money when he coached the Illini. He made even more money when he coached a much higher profile program in the Florida Gators. The Zooker has had many good paying coaching gigs in this life. He was once even defensive coordinator for the New Orleans Saints!
Yet, here he is, working in a bank. Not a glamorous high powered Wall Street investment bank a short walk from the New York Stock Exchange. No, no, no. Ron Zook is a middle manager at a small little local bank in Ocala, Florida. Yes, he’s working in some town you’ve never heard of, in a boring, mundane local branch, just like the pedestrian bank in your town.
Does this make any sense at all? Is the Zookster just one of those people that has to keep working all the time? You know the type of person that works just for the sake of working. I bet Ron Zook is great at recruiting clients to sign up for free checking! He’s just probably terrible at coaching them in how to save and earn interest!

Look at the website for Gateway Bank in Ocala, Florida.Scroll down, way down to the right hand side. You’ll see him right there.

I can't believe he would even show his face in this state.

Nah he is good at getting it to come to the bank, he is just terrible managing it once he gets it.

There's no replacing Spurrier, period.  I can't wait to see it happen to Bama.  No offense to the Bama guys cause they're all good posters on here but, JC enough with the winning already.

May the bridges I burn light the way.

No, that did suck for him.
But there was NO reason to lose 5 games every year at Florida.
None.

Yea, I'm not saying you guys jumped the gun as proven by his record at Illinois.  I'm just saying he had to win 10/year and some SEC titles to keep his job.  If I was a great coach I don't know that I would ever replace a legend, top 5 job or not.

May the bridges I burn light the way.

I don't know if I would chance that either.
Guess that's why I'm not in coaching, ha.

Considering the number of people that wouldn't brake for him crossing the street, yes.
