Now that Brian Kelly has left Notre Dame, it has naturally started to leak out that Urban Meyer might be coming back to college football as he continues to deal with losing with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
On ESPN’s “Get Up” on Tuesday, Mike Greenberg posed the question to college football reporter Heather Dinich as she stewed over the idea of that happening as she spoke on how his lap dance videos left her scarred.
“I don’t think it’s a good idea. I don’t,” Dinich said. “Urban’s made his choices, and not all of them have been great. Is he a good coach? Yeah, he won at Ohio State. We’ve seen some issues. We’ve seen some videos. I’m scarred by those videos.”
Aside from the lap dance video, Urban also was suspended three games in 2018 for mishandling domestic assault allegations against assistant coach Zach Smith at Ohio State. He had many off-the-field issues with his Florida teams. The New York Times even reported that at least 31 of his players were arrested between 2005 and 2010.
The Jaguars are 2-9 in Meyer’s first season in the NFL.
In college, Meyer is a proven winner. He won two national championships at Florida and one at Ohio State.
College is likely going to call his name anytime an opening comes up, but Notre Dame is just not a good fit for him.
