Urban Meyer decided to suddenly up and retire yesterday and it took all of negative 10 seconds for everyone in the world to at least ponder whether or not he was considering a run at coaching Tim Tebow again with the Denver Broncos.

Well, all you jerkstores who decided to speculate on that silly possibility (oh, wait, was that me?) can shut up. Because Meyer says he's not coaching next season.

"I'm not coaching next season," Meyer said with a smile when asked about the Denver rumors.

He was also referring to the possibility that he'd coach at Michigan too (even though they don't even have an opening).

Look, the Meyer discussion yesterday was absolutely, 100 percent speculation. That was clear when we discussed it, and no one actually thought a) Meyer would be silly enough to randomly make a run at the NFL or b) the Broncos would be silly enough to make a run at a guy with no NFL head coaching experience.

But Tebow and Meyer are forever intertwined because of their success at Florida, so when the opportunity to coach Tebow opens up and two days later Meyer quits his current job, well, people are at least going to ask.

That's good, but we heard you earlier in the week when you said you were stepping away.  Now, finally, please go away quietly.

He wasn't coaching this season either. Zing!


AES: That is the most amusing (and absolutely correct) comment I've seen on this site in a long time! Keep up the good work!

I'm not sure where all the anti-Meyer sentiment comes from. I haven't come across any college football coach -- and I've worked with a lot of them -- who didn't have a God Syndrome and an ego to match. Meyer is no better and no worse than any of them. I have to take my hat off for the work he did at Utah and Florida. Go ahead and say he rode Tebow's talent, but to say that undermines the other superb things he did. Look at Alex Smith now. Does he have any similarity to the Alex Smith at Utah? Jeez, give the man some credit for what he brought to those programs and to college football. Is he another Bryant or Paterno? Of course not. Who is at 46? Is he one of the world's Most Wonderful Human Beings? I can't think of many coaches who win the Lady Byng trophy. Just take him for what he is: A great college football coach who gave it all he had and is paying for it now with his health.

Urban Meyer: 'I'm not coaching next season'

Urban Meyer one of the best college coaches ever?  Not even close.  Perhaps you need to look deeper than the last 5 years before you make that comment.  You are placing him above Bryant, Bowden, Paterno, Stagg, Robinson and Warner, just to name a few?  Come on, you are either looking to be controversial or very short sighted.
Meyer is a good coach that will go down as having the benefit of one of the best college football players ever and he definitely made the most of it.  I hope he is healthy and can enjoy the rest of his life, but I have a sneaky suspicion he will be back somewhere soon.
