Will Urban Meyer coach again? Kirk Herbstreit weighs in following Meyer's retirement
Tuesday morning, Ohio State announced that Urban Meyer was retiring as the Buckeyes’ head coach. Offensive coordinator Ryan Day will take over for Meyer after the Rose Bowl.
So, the very next question that was asked, ‘Will Urban Meyer coach again?’ We’ve seen this play out once after he left Florida in 2010 only to return at Ohio State in 2012.
Social media is already speculating that Meyer will land a powerhouse job and coach again in 2020.
Following the news of Meyer’s retirement, ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit joined “Get Up” and was asked that very question, but Herbstreit doesn’t see it happening this time around.
“No. 1, I don’t see him coaching again,” Herbstreit said. “I wouldn’t be surprised to see him stay within the Ohio State community — stay within the athletic department in some capacity.
“He’s an Ohio State guy. This is different than Florida. Urban Meyer is an Ohio State guy. The outside world thinks he’s a Notre Dame guy. He is an Ohio State guy to the core. His legacy is everything to him. And, so, when he steps down at Ohio State, this is very different.”
