Urban Meyer Responds To Report Linking Him To Michigan State

4 Min Read

Urban Meyer has responded to a report that linked him to the Michigan State football coaching job.

Meyer told ESPN’s Adam Schefter that he is “not interested” in the Michigan State job. He said that he is happy in his current role as an analyst for Fox Sports.

“I’m not interested in the Michigan State job,” Meyer said. “I’m happy in my current role at Fox Sports. I love being an analyst and I’m not looking to get back into coaching.”

Meyer’s comments come after a report from OutKick’s Bernie Fratto claimed that Meyer was interviewing for the Michigan State job. Michigan State fired head coach Mel Tucker on October 3rd after the Spartans started the season 2-3.

Meyer is one of the most successful college football coaches of all time. He won three national championships with Florida and Ohio State. He retired from coaching in 2021 after a tumultuous tenure at Jacksonville Jaguars.

Meyer has been linked to several college football coaching jobs since retiring from the NFL. However, he has denied all interest in returning to coaching.


It’s not surprising that Meyer is not interested in the Michigan State job. He is a three-time national champion and he is currently in a very comfortable role at Fox Sports.

Meyer would also be taking on a lot of risk if he took the Michigan State job. The Spartans are in a rebuilding phase, and they are in a tough division with Ohio State, Michigan, and Penn State.

It’s also important to note that Meyer has a lot of baggage. He was fired from the Jaguars after just one season, and he has been accused of mishandling domestic violence allegations against one of his former assistants.

What’s Next

It will be interesting to see who Michigan State hires as their next head coach. The Spartans are a good program with a lot of potential, but they need a coach who can turn them around quickly.

It’s also possible that Meyer could change his mind about returning to coaching in the future. He is a very competitive person, and he may miss the thrill of winning and losing.

However, for now, it seems that Meyer is happy in his current role at Fox Sports.
