Jacksonville Jaguars coach Urban Meyer not interested in leaving NFL for college football jobs, source says


Could Urban Meyer be the next Notre Dame coach?

Heather Dinich and Paul Finebaum agree that Urban Meyer is not a good fit for the Fighting Irish. The first part of the story is over.

The time is 12:19 PM.

A league source tells me that Urban Meyer has no interest in taking another head-coaching job in college and remains committed to rebuilding the Jaguars.

The source said the coach doesn't want to go back to college at this point in his life. The name, image, likeness rules that were not in place when Meyer was at Ohio State were implemented in college football.

Meyer was courted by Notre Dame in 2005 along with Florida, which is why his name has been linked to the opening at Notre Dame.

LSU hired Brian Kelly, who led the Fighting Irish to a 113-40 record over the past 11 seasons.

It's not the first time this season that Meyer has been linked to an open college job. Meyer said there was no chance that he would leave the NFL to become the USC head coach. Lincoln Riley was hired by the school on Monday.

In early September, Meyer said he didn't miss the recruiting part.

Meyer is in his first season with the Jags, who have lost three games in a row heading into Sunday's game against the Rams. TheJaguars have struggled on offense all season. Injuries at receiver and tight end have hurt Lawrence's development, and the Jags are scoring 15.7 points, which is worse than every other team except the Houston Texans.

Meyer won three national titles and had a good record as a college coach. He won two of those titles with the Gators. He had an 83-9 record in seven seasons in Columbus, Ohio, and was the leader of the Buckeyes to the national title.
