The Urban Meyer to Ohio State rumors have been running rampant for a little while now, but the former head coach of the Florida Gators is still serving his duties as a college football analyst for ESPN. While working Saturday afternoon's game between the Michigan Wolverines and the Nebraska Cornhuskers, Meyer addressed the rumors that he will be the Ohio State Buckeyes' next head coach.
Dave Pasch, one of the other men in the three-man booth for Saturday's game, took time during a break in the broadcast to have the following exchange.
"Urban, I just want to ask you, there have been reports indicating that you have accepted the Ohio State head coaching position," Pasch said.
Urban replied quickly and emphatically.
"Well there's no truth to that," Meyer said of the rumors. "I know it's that time of year, but I have not been offered any job and I have certainly not accepted any job."
This probably won't stop the rampant rumors from circulating until the Ohio State head coaching position is filled on a permanent basis. For those claiming it isn't true, however, at least there's now a public denial on the record from Meyer.
