Contrary to reports elsewhere, Dennis Dodd of CBS Sports is reporting that Urban Meyer has not agreed to coach Ohio State. The report cites an anonymous source who is "intimately involved" in the situation, who indicated that no deal is in place and seemed to suggest that any deal is much farther off than simply agreeing on a salary.
"People can throw out guesses," the person said. "Some may or may not know what they’re talking about. It’s [report] not true. That’s not the case. That is all there is to say."
Meyer himself has twice denied reports that he has been offered the Ohio State coaching job, but that does leave the door open for all kinds of other discussions that may or may not have happened. Somewhat fueling the speculation is his absence from the ESPN broadcast crew of this weekend's Ohio State-Michigan game. ESPN said that he would be better used as an analyst in Bristol, Conn.
