Spurrier Urban Wiley seemed like a perfect name for a son.Until the man he was named for took a job at Ohio State.

University of Florida graduate Jen Wiley named her son for two of the most successful coaches in school history -- Steve Spurrier and Urban Meyer.

"My husband and I got married in 1996, when Spurrier won the championships," Wiley told reporter Chris Hopper of Bay News 9. "And then we conceived in 2006 when Urban Meyer won the championship."

Wiley said "I felt sick" when Meyer took the job in Columbus and now she wants to change her 4-year-old son's middle name but only if her husband agrees.

The name up for grabs? Tim as in Tebow.
