Urban Meyer won’t be going back to South Bend.
According to ESPN.com, the Jaguars coach “has no interest in taking another head-coaching job in college and remains committed to rebuilding the Jaguars.”
It’s entirely possible Meyer has no interest in taking another head-coaching job in college because no college job has interest in Meyer. Whether it was USC or LSU or Oklahoma or now Notre Dame, his name has not surfaced as a viable candidate at any of those places. So it’s easy for him to say he’s not interested in taking a college coaching job.
Also, it’s smart. He creates the impression that there would be demand for his services, if he wanted to leave for a college job. Even if there wouldn’t be.
