Urban Meyer may return to college football

Must read

Taking control of a disarrayed franchise like the Jacksonville Jaguars is tough for anyone, let alone a rookie NFL coach at Urban Meyer.

After a rather disappointing first game in charge of the Jaguars, as they lost to the Houston Texans, it now looks like Meyer could get back to college football pretty quickly.

Having become a legend in college football circles with Ohio State and the Florida Gators, where Meyer won championships with both programs, much was expected of Meyer to make an easy transition to the NFL.

However, as we know, the NFL is a totally different beast compared to college football. While it is still early in his tenure at the Jaguars, some red flags have already been raised.

The first was the extremely strange situation with Tim Tebow and his change of position. It was highly publicized only that the Jags cut the former Denver Broncos quarterback.

Then there was the opening day debacle at the hands of the Texans, in which the Jaguars lost 37-21. So it hasn’t exactly been an easy ride for Meyer, and it’s not exactly what he or the NFL community expected from such a glorified college coach.

The Jaguars aren’t going to be a quick fix, and most fans know it, but if for some reason the situation in Jacksonville doesn’t work out for Urban Meyer, then there are some folks who think he’d be more than happy to return. to college football, where he made a name for himself.

Michael Lombardi has stated on social media that sources have told him that Meyer would appreciate the opportunity to return to college football. There have been other outlets reporting the same as the story picks up speed.

One team that has already been probed is the USC Trojans. Since firing his head coach Clay Helton, Meyer’s name has come up in the conversation. Having met his usual standards, having a coach like Urban Meyer take the reins could be the start of something special.

However, given that Meyer is going to have at least this year in the NFL, the Trojans might as well have their coach signed, sealed and delivered before Meyer even gets a chance. Names have already appeared in the race for the job, with Bob Stoops and Luke Fickell being the leading candidates.

It’s no secret that success follows Meyer wherever he goes. Winning at Bowling Green, then Utah, Florida, and then Ohio State Buckeyes, winning and Meyer go hand in hand.

There’s still plenty of water under the bridge, and let’s not forget he’s only coached one game in the NFL, but it certainly looks like if Meyer wants to return to college football, he won’t be short of suitors.
