Keith Byars doesn't think Meyer will coach again, but if he did, it would only be for Notre Dame.

He's on local sports talk a lot during the college season. I thought it was interesting and maybe indicates that Meyer really does still dream of coaching ND. Not that could ever happen though, for all the reasons mentioned many times.

How can he ever coach again? He gets really bad headaches.

If true...then he's never coaching again.

It would make sense to end up at USC.

Endless recruiting talent, he's won in the SEC and the Big 10, giving it a shot in the Pac 12 is a natural. Plus, he doesn't really have to be shady out here to get good players, they want to come no matter what.

Evidently he is dumber than a box of rocks.

How So? His point was that is what Meyer would want. Maybe he's heard Meyer talk about it.

Not a chance in Hell as long as Father Jenkins is in charge

Jenkins and others at ND are still pissed at that little show Meyer put on in Utah back in December of 2004. He had Jenkins, White and others fly out to Utah to discuss the ND job. Meyer made unreasonable demands that he knew ND could not accept, made those tearful calls to his father and other coaches to discuss the merits of the ND and Florida jobs, when he had already agreed to become the Florida coach back in October after the firing of Zook. Any consideration for ND that December was just for show.

When Jenkins and White left Utah after Meyer "picked" Florida, they were both surprised and disappointed. However once they learned shortly afterwards that Meyer had in fact already agreed to terms with Florida back in October, they were furious. They knew they had been played so Meyer could gain a recruiting advantage by being able to publicly claim that he picked Florida over ND. Jenkins has a long memory and I don't think Meyer would ever be considered for Notre Dame as long as Jenkins is in charge. This would be the case even if Meyer had a spotless reputation and did not have the baggage associated with him from Florida and Ohio State.

I thank Urban for one thing...

His availability in 2004 helped to motivate the University to get rid of Ty Willingham after 3 years instead of 5. For that I will always be grateful.

(Also thank him for his work as a receivers coach while he was at ND. So, I guess it's two things.)


You're right though. When he had his chance he leveraged ND and went to Florida. He got what he wanted...and burned the bridge in doing so...

Totally agree...I hope ND is above hiring him

Only way Hurb coaches at ND is if he grovels on his hands and knees

to Fr. Jenkins, BEGS for forgiveness, then agrees to a zero buyout if he fucks up at any point. As such, this is much too structured for Hurb and he won’t touch it with my ten foot pole....!

Yes. Keith wants tOSU to hire him as defensive coordinator. Pepper has 5 Super Bowl rings.
