Urban Meyer Denies Report Of Penn State Contact

Former Florida Gators coach Urban Meyer was reported to be in casual touch with the Penn St. Nittany Lions about a potential upcoming coaching vacancy. The ESPN analyst denied the report to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

"I'm not going to say anything about it," Meyer told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette upon arriving at Beaver Stadium to work the ABC/ESPN telecast of the Penn State-Iowa game. "There's no truth to the rumor."

Meyer has been linked via rumor and speculation with Penn State and with the Ohio St. Buckeyes job since, well, the moment he left Florida both times he left Florida. Though he's never really made a public comment that would lead one to conclude he's interested, it's hard to imagine he won't itch to coach another program at some point, especially one with which he already has personal connections.
