Urban Meyer is working once again in college, but not as a head coach.
It was announced that Urban Meyer is joining the board of THE Foundation, which is aimed at helping student-athletes land name, image and likeness deals.
“There isn’t a better person to have on the board than Coach Urban Meyer,” Brian Schottenstein, a co-founder, said. “It goes without saying that he’s one of the greatest recruiters of student-athletes and coaches of all time. I appreciate his support and friendship.”
THE Foundation was founded by Schottenstein and former Buckeyes quarterback Cardale Jones. Meyer may have been forced out of the NFL and his opportunity with the Jacksonville Jaguars ended with a certain level of embarrassment, but there is no denying his importance to the history of Ohio State football
Meyer, a three-time college football national champion, likely will never find another path to working in the NFL after his first season as head coach started with controversy and ended with him not being able to get through one season while being fired.
Will he be welcomed back to college football, there would most certainly be a program that would love to him coaching their team to a possible National Championship.
