Meyer: No coaching job offered by Ohio State


Former Florida coach Urban Meyer told CBSSports.com on Monday that he has not been offered the Ohio State job. He did, however, say that if the job became open and were offered he would have to consider it.

“Our family is in a good place right now and we’re enjoying our time together. I feel good and I’m enjoying what I am doing,” Meyer said by phone. “If an opportunity like that did come along I would consider it only because it is home. If something happens at Ohio State then I would have a decision to make.” Meyer is a native of Ashtabula, Ohio. He attended the University of Cincinnati and was a graduate assistant at Ohio State.

"I miss coaching but some of the concerns I had when I left are still there," said Meyer. "I want to spend time with my family and I want to look out for my health. But there has been no offer."

Meyer won two national championships (2006, 2008) in six seasons at Florida (2005-2010). The former head coach at Bowling Green and Utah has been doing television commentary for ESPN this season.

Luke Fickell is currently serving as the interim head coach at Ohio State. Jim Tressel was dismissed from the position earlier this year.
