Urban Meyer to Notre Dame? Paul Finebaum weighs in about the idea
Urban Meyer has described being the head coach at Notre Dame as his dream job, and now there’s an opening for it to happen. But ESPN commentator Paul Finebaum has clearly weighed in on the idea during a segment on ESPN’s “Get Up.”
Mike Greenberg brought up Meyer’s winning percentage being the highest in college football.
“You’re right, he could have had the job when Brian Kelly got it. He turned it down to go to Florida where he won 2 national championships,” Finebaum said. “I think he’s burned that bridge, and quite frankly, I think it would be an atrocious choice. He has burned out everywhere he’s ever been. He has not shown us anything at Jacksonville and I think Jack Swarbrick the athletic director is far too smart to make a mistake like hiring Urban Meyer.”
Meyer is 2-9 in his first season coaching the Jacksonville Jaguars.
