Urban Meyer Says He Would “Absolutely” Take Cowboys Job (VIDEO)
As of right now, Jason Garrett is the Dallas Cowboys head coach, but if the team falters somehow and doesn’t qualify for the postseason or get eliminated after one game, he could see his tenure come to an end.
If Jerry Jones has some coaches in mind to replace him, he can go ahead and add one more. Appearing Friday on Colin Cowherd’s radio show, Urban Meyer stated his willingness to take the head coaching position in the Big D.
“That’s New York Yankees, that’s the Dallas Cowboys,” Meyer initially said regarding the question of whether Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley would or should want the job, via Jon Machota of TheAthletic.com. “That’s the one. Great city. They got Dak Prescott, Zeke Elliott. You got a loaded team. And I can’t speak for him obviously, I hate to even speculate because I don’t know him, that’s really not fair, but to me, that’s the one job in professional football that you say, ‘I got to go do that.’”
Cowherd then asked Meyer if he would be interested in talking with the Cowboys.
“Sure,” Meyer said. “Absolutely. Absolutely. That one? Yes.”
Earlier this month, owner Jerry Jones shot down rumors that Garrett could be fired, stating, “Don’t bet any money on that happening,” he said. “You’ll lose it.”
Meyer retired from coaching at the end of 2018 after seven seasons with Ohio State.
