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.
