Sporting News writer David Whitley said Urban Meyer is the most highly sought-after coach.
Many teams are after Meyer.
The storied Penn State Nittany Lions are in turmoil after the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse scandal. The scandal led to Joe Paterno, Penn State college president Graham Spanier and others being fired or forced to resign.
Aside from off the field issues, the Nittany Lions also don't have the personnel to pull off Meyer's offensive system.
Meyer was cheered when he covered a Notre Dame Fighting Irish game earlier this year. However, the Fighting Irish will most likely keep coach Brian Kelly.
If Kelly leaves Notre Dame, Meyer would have to deal with a program that has underachieved since legendary coach Lou Holtz left.
Other rumored destinations include UCLA and Arizona, who are lower rung teams in the Pac-12 behind Oregon and USC.
The Ohio State Buckeyes, even though they are dealing with the tattoo scandal, provide Meyer with the best chance to succeed if he decides to coach again.
The Buckeyes gave Meyer his first assistant coaching job, and he is an Ohio native.
Ohio State is a perennial leader in the Big Ten Conference and has the reputation and resources to recruit top local and national football players than UCLA and Arizona would.
Penn State is a storied program, but the Sandusky scandal accompanied with always being in Paterno's shadow are recipes for Meyer to surely failure.
