Urban Meyer names a job he would 'absolutely' come out of retirement for
There’s been a lot of speculation lately that the Dallas Cowboys should offer Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley whatever he wants to make the move south to Dallas next season.
However, it remains to be seen if Riley even wants to leave Norman, or the college ranks in general.
On Friday, though, former Ohio State and Florida coach Urban Meyer joined “The Herd with Colin Cowherd” and said if he was offered the Cowboys’ job, he’d take it:

“That’s New York Yankees, that’s the Dallas Cowboys,” Meyer said. “That’s the one. Great city. They got Dak Prescott, you got Zeke Elliott. You got a loaded team. And I can’t speak for him obviously, I hate to even speculate because I don’t know him, that’s really not fair, but to me, that’s the one job in professional football that you kinda say, ‘I got to go do that.'”
Meyer then says he hasn’t been contacted by the Cowboys, but when Cowherd asks if he would listen should Dallas come calling, he said:
“Sure. Absolutely. Absolutely. That one? Yes.”
Your move, Jerry Jones.
