    Meyer always said he had no interest in the NFL- while he was here.
    I believed him. I think the man is smart enough to know that he's the most successful in college.
    So I would be surprised if he went to the Cowboys.

    Now Jerry Jones being interested in Lincoln Riley- that makes a lot of sense.
    That sounds just like Jones. He hired both Johnson and Switzer right out of college and both won Super Bowls.
    Whether Riley would go- no clue.

    Yeah I can't see Urban going there and being instantly strapped to bring talent in due to the contracts Zeek, Jaylon Smith, Lawrence, Dak and Amari will have. He's used to being able to bring in talent whenever he wants, here it will all be under a budget. Not sure he would enjoy that disadvantage.

    It is sort of annoying that his name keeps popping up in coaching searches. He clearly wasn't healthy at UF nor was he healthy at Ohio State. We watched the man collapse after Saban beat him and literally almost pass out at OSU. It's just not a healthy option for him to go back to coaching, especially to a place where he doesn't have a huge advantage like he did at OSU.

    Of course all of that could have been faked to get out of UF and OSU after his mishaps there with that assistant coach and being totally fine with having a murderer on his team. Guess we'll never know.

    There was no murderer on his team for him to have been totally fine with.

    Most of those Candidates would be an improvement over Jason Garrett aka Mr. 500 Record LOL :p

    Why Saban was an abject failure in the NFL and why he pulled that crap on the Dolphins. Can't give Dodge Chargers away and buy yourself a Natty in the NFL.

    Jerry Jones also had history with Johnson, a teammate at Arkansas, and Switzer, who coached at Arkansas while Jones was there. Riley won the Broyles Award (best assistant coach) in 2015, which is named after Jones's coach at Arkansas, Frank Broyles; Switzer was on the selection committee that awarded Riley (has since been joined on the committee by Stoops).

    You definitely got bad info. He's still alive...unless he died in the last 5 minutes and it hasn't made the news yet.

    Yeah, there was a hoax report on the interwebz a month or so ago. Probably filtered into the old memory bank.

    Urban Myer: Urban is in Washington today watching the Redskins host the Eagles…and there is a lot of chatter among NFL folk that Dan Snyder is interested in Urban’s services.

    Watching the game. Urbs is in the stands sitting next to Alex Smith. Cannot see him coaching for Snyder unless his contract gives him much more control over player personnel decisions than any of the other previous Redskin coaches under Snyder including Steve Spurrier. Bruce Allen is the president of the team and between him and Snyder the Redskins probably have the worst management of any team in the NFL.
