When a college football job comes open, Urban Meyer’s name is connected to it. When an article is written about the top candidates for jobs in 2012, Meyer’s name is on that list.
Read the internet and or turn on television or radio sports coverage and you’ll hear that it’s just a matter of time before the ex-Florida coach is back on the sidelines.
And we at MrSEC.com continue to say Meyer’s return will come later rather than sooner.
SI.com has posted a series of videos that shine light onto Meyer’s personal life. In this clip from “Inside the Private World of Urban Meyer,” you’ll see how Meyer’s decision to walk away from football — twice in a year — impacted his wife and children. Hint: They weren’t sad about it.
The lure of coaching is great, to be sure. And Meyer may recharge his batteries and grab the reins at Ohio State in just a few short months. But we think it’s more likely he’ll follow in the footsteps of fellow well-known workaholic Jon Gruden. Rather than jump right back into coaching, the ex-Super Bowl winner has remained a broadcaster with ESPN much longer than anyone anticipated. Don’t be surprised if Meyer doesn’t do the same.
Watch “Behind the Resignation” and we think you’ll understand why we feel the way we do.
