According to multiple sources, Ohio State and Urban Meyer are discussing the Buckeyes coaching position.
ESPN's Adam Rittenberg and Chris Low cover college football for ESPN.com, and they reported about the talks taking place.
Ohio State Athletic Director Gene Smith says no deal has been reached, and Meyer Deny's the current reports. Meyer said Saturday in the broadcast booth at the Nebraska-Michgican game, that, "There's no truth to that" when asked about reports that he has accepted the Buckeyes' coaching job.
While I heard him say those words, I couldn't help but notice the fact that Meyer wasn't looking directly into the camera and that he was smirking. It was the look of a guy trying to hide the truth and his excitement about the Ohio State Buckeyes coaching job. It would certainly seem like the dream job for a guy who grew up in Toledo Ohio.
He started his coaching career as a graduate assistant coach for the Buckeyes in 1986. He sounded a lot like a guy who misses coaching too, as much as he tries to cover it up.
"I miss a lot of things about it, but I also am really enjoying another part, that I get to watch my kids play sports," Meyer said in an AP interview earlier this month.
Everybody wants to see their kids play sports, Urban! Not everybody gets a chance to coach at the Mecca of college athletics in Ohio.
The main reason this job will be so hard for him to pass up is the fact there is already talent on this roster. He could easily win a national championship within two years, just as he did when becoming the Florida Gators head coach in 2005.
