Meyer was relieved of his post as the Jags HC after he was reported to have kicked one of his players, and he hasn’t coached since. According to PGA Tour golfer Billy Horschel, the 58-year-old won’t be returning to the sideline, at least not anytime soon.
Horschel was around when Meyer was in charge of the Florida Gators and claims to have been told by Meyer himself that he has no desire to return to coaching.
According to Rob Oller of the Columbus Dispatch, the former college and NFL HC told the golfer that coaching took too much out of him, plus the transfer rules and the introduction of NIL at the NCAA level would require him to change his methods.
Meyer’s wife is said to have agreed.
“I looked at (Shelley) and she nodded (when Urban said he was done coaching),” Horschel was quoted as saying.
This hardly comes as a shock as Meyer’s spell in Jacksonville was not a very positive one. Coupled with his health issues, there’s no reason for him to want to return.
As a college coach, though, Meyer boasts an incredible 86 percent win rate and has won three national titles.
There’s also the matter of his job at FOX, which affords him a lot more time with his family. So it’s unlikely we’ll see Urban Meyer coaching again, though you can never tell.
