After reports by Eleven Warriors and then ESPN that Urban Meyer is in touch with the Ohio St. Buckeyes -- Eleven Warriors added that he's essentially agreed to become their next head coach -- Meyer twice denied the news. Here's a third, and you know what that means!
In a brief interview with Pat Dooley, Meyer listed his health, family, and the state of college football as his concerns, but notes that if Ohio State came calling, he'd "have a decision to make."
The most important quote of his to note:
"I love football," he said. "It's what I am. I miss it."
For what it's worth, Clay Travis reports he'll be introduced at a basketball game next week. No word on if the entire ESPN staff alleged to be accompanying Meyer to Columbus will also be in the OH IT'S A DUKE GAME. In that case, yes, ESPN will be named defensive coordinator.
