You can add a person to the long list of folks who believe Urban Meyer will coach again — Tim Tebow. The former Florida Heisman-winner was asked on today’s Dan Patrick radio show if he thought his old coach would step on the field again someday. According to DanPatrick.com, Tebow said that he does.
“But he’s proud that he stepped down, and said it took a lot of ‘courage’ and ‘backbone’ to make that decision,” the site reports.
The return of Meyer should be expected at this point. The coach himself has said don’t call his walk away from the game a retirement. That said, everyone expected ex-NFL coach Jon Gruden to jump back into coaching after a year away from the pro game, too. But he’s still sitting happily in the broadcast booth.
Meyer might just find that life is easier when he’s home more often and when the pressure of college coaching rests on some other guy’s head. And who knows what his family might push him to do behind the scenes?
For now, we agree with Tebow that Meyer will be back. But we don’t think that’s a dead-solid lock. Let’s see how his year in the media goes.
