Urban Meyer Actually Did Meet With Texas Officials This Week
Joe Maiorana-USA TODAY Sports
I guess Longhorns fans were right. According to a report from Football Scoop, both University of Texas president Jay Hartzell and athletics director Chris Del Conte flew to meet with Urban Meyer earlier this week. Mind you, Tom Herman is still the head coach...
quote:

“They’re doing everything they can do to convince him,” said a source with direct knowledge of the talks between Texas officials and Meyer.

Texas’ ability to lure Meyer out of retirement after two years has been considered by most to be a long shot.

Texas will be good for him. Hard to bail out on a team with weak excuses if you don't have a team.

This might cause me to me to move if they start winning. They are the most arrogant and delusional fanbase in America. Well them and then A&M.

Calling it now. Urban comes as head coach and keeps Herman as OC. No buy out. Redemption for all.

You're higher than a birds arse if you think Herman has that level of humility.

For his own health, he should stay retired.

If you can't win big in Texas you're either a shitty coach or shitty program manager. Or both. Meyer or Saban would spend like 10 minutes recruiting Texas and have 25 4 and 5 stars signed on the dotted line, and another 50 begging to get in. College Football better hope Meyer likes retirement or it will be Alabama, Texas, clemson, and Ohio State's world. and the rest will be fighting over the scraps.

At least until he has to resign because of another "health condition".

Could care less about what UT does, but it's sad to see what universities do to people. 2.5 years in and they expect a championship or something? They became a shite program and it's going to take a few seasons to get things sorted out. Plus, they going after a coach that's going to retire again in 3 years because heart attacks.

Herman has had four years and was left with a decent roster when he arrived. Saban turned both Bama and LSU around in less time as did Meyer at UF and tOSU. Meyer is one of the only "can't miss" coaches in the game.

Boss move would be Woodward getting Herman as OC for 500k/yr to make it seem legit, and let Texas pick up the rest of his salary. Let him install a new offense for a year then he can go be a head coach somewhere else.

Texas doesn’t fire Herman unless Urban says yes. It may not be over for him. Still, I’m glad he rejected us.

not very nice of Urban to take that meeting while his boy kissy face is still their coach.

Texas is going to need to hire another social justice warrior in order to please the Libs in Austin. Texas Football=Big Hat and No Cattle
