Urban Meyer says of Ohio State coaching position: 'I've not been offered any job'

Urban Meyer was asked about reports Ohio State had been in contact with him about its soon-to-be-open job of head football coach.

Meyer’s first coaching job was as a graduate assistant at Ohio State in 1986.

But Meyer, 47, who won a national championship at Florida but is now a member of the media as an ESPN analyst, wasn’t about to break any such news.

“I know it’s that time of year,” he said while working the Michigan-Nebraska game. “I’ve not been offered any job, and I’ve certainly not accepted any job.”

Hmmm. That wasn’t really the question.
