Reports are flying around the interwebs that Urban Meyer has accepted a 7-year, $40 million deal to coach OSU. However, as of right now, Urban Meyer is denying that he is the Ohio State Buckeyes head coach.
“I have not been offered any job nor is there a deal in place. I plan on spending Thanksgiving with my family and will not comment on this any further.” – Urban Meyer
Even if it’s not official yet, it seems pretty inevitable. So, if he does become the head coach at OSU, it begs the question: What do you do if you love Urban Meyer, but hate Ohio State? This is my predicament because I think Urban’s a stand up guy, but boy do I dislike Ohio State. After giving it a lot of thought… I am going to continue to love Urban Meyer the person, and strongly dislike the Ohio State Buckeyes football program, and the majority of its fans. Urban had his national championship success with Tebow at Florida, so he doesn’t need any titles to validate his career…so I don’t need to cheer for Ohio State. Problem solved.
Side question: Is this Urban Meyer with an amazing mustache as tight end coach of the Ohio State Buckeyes?
His wiki page has him as the tight end coach in 1986 and wide receivers coach in 1987. This is a screen shot from the 1987 Cotton Bowl. Is it Urban? It looks like him. Lobsters? What do you think?
**update: Urban Meyer has indeed accepted the Ohio State head coaching job**
