Urban Meyer may be done coaching for good. Well, at least that is what his former Ohio State QB Cardale Jones believes.
Jones believes Urban Meyer will never roam a sideline as a head coach again after the constant controversies he went through with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The former Buckeyes QB, who won a national championship with Urban in 2014, told TMZ Sports that his quick firing shows that the game has passed him by.
“It’s almost like the term, ‘You can’t teach an old dog new tricks,'” Jones said. “I think [Urban’s] ways are a little behind us.”
When it comes to the National Football League — Jones doesn’t think his former college coach will ever get a second there.
“I wouldn’t say [his coaching style] is outdated, because he was just coaching college three years ago,” Jones said. “It’s just times have changed.”
“And I don’t know if he’s willing to make that sacrifice and change in his demeanor, his personality, or his coaching style to keep up with times today.”
Jones couldn’t say whether the allegations of him kicking a player were true, but he did state he and Meyer did not have the world’s greatest relationship at OSU.
“Out of my four years at Ohio State, I probably had 10 conversations with Coach Meyer,” Jones said. “And that’s including hi and bye walking through the freakin’ facility.”
