Urban Meyer Denies Deal Is In Place With Ohio State

Urban Meyer and the Ohio State Buckeyes have been involved in quite a few rumored deals over the past week, but the former head coach of the Florida Gators and current ESPN college football analyst is still denying any sort of contract agreement. Meyer's latest denial came just a short while after the newest report regarding the Buckeyes' head coaching job.

Meyer was reported to have agreed to a deal that would pay him $40 million over the course of seven seasons to become the new Ohio State head coach on Wednesday morning, according to Orlando sports station WKMG. The television station even had details on Meyer's coaching staff, but the retired Meyer has once again went on record to deny anything involving the Buckeyes.

"I have not been offered any job nor is there a deal in place," Meyer said in a statement to ESPN. "I plan on spending Thanksgiving with my family and will not comment on this any further."

There are several rumors circulating that Meyer will be introduced as the Buckeyes head coach when Ohio State plays Duke in a men's basketball game next week. Until then, it seems Meyer will continue to deny all reports connecting him with the Buckeyes.
