Urban Meyer: If Offered The Job At Ohio State “I’ll Have A Decision To Make”
Former University of Florida head coach Urban Meyer, who has been rumored to most major college football coaching openings since stepping down as coach of the Gators in 2010, said that if the Buckeyes offer him their coaching job that he’ll “have a decision to make,” according to The Gainesville Sun.
“I’m in a good place right now mentally and physically. So if something happens with Ohio State, I’ll have a decision to make. But there has been no interview. There has been no offer to make a decision about,” Meyer told the paper.
It was widely reported this weekend that Meyer had been lined up by Ohio State to be their next head football coach after Jim Tressel was forced to resign at the end of last season. Meyer has since denied those reports, however, he would not rule out being open to a return, especially to a program with the stature of Ohio State.
In six years as the head coach of Florida, Meyer posted a 65-15 record while claiming two National Championships. He has a 102-23 record as a head coach overall, and is 7-1 all-time in bowl games.
