Report: Cowboys have ‘very real interest’ in Urban Meyer

Urban Meyer

Barring a Super Bowl run, Jason Garrett’s time as Dallas Cowboys head coach seems like it will end after this season. Once he’s gone, the big question will become: who will replace him? The Cowboys apparently have a few names in mind.

NFL Media’s Jane Slater reported on Thursday night that the Cowboys have “very real interest” in Urban Meyer. She says Stephen Jones even spoke with Meyer recently. Slater says Oklahoma Sooners head coach Lincoln Riley remains a strong candidate, and that Clemson offensive coordinator Tony Elliott is also a possibility.

Between those three names, it’s hard to imagine the Cowboys not making Meyer their top priority. He is one of the greatest coaches in college football history and has had success at every single stop, from Bowling Green and Utah to Florida and Ohio State.

The big issue with Meyer is his health. Not having to recruit year-round might be better on his health and allow him to focus more on coaching, which could make the NFL ideal for him. And keep this in mind: Meyer has already said he would “absolutely” take the job.
