Urban Meyer sparks Redskins coaching rumors by attending game with Dan Snyder
Urban Meyer has heard his name mentioned in connection with a number of high-profile coaching jobs at both the collegiate and NFL levels, and we can now add the Washington Redskins to that list.
Meyer was at FedEx Field on Sunday as a guest of owner Daniel Snyder, and JP Finlay of NBC Sports reports that the Redskins would love to hire the three-time national champion as their next head coach.
Urban Meyer is at FedEx Field today, per source. Former Ohio State head coach is a huge target for NFL teams looking for new coaches, and with Dwayne Haskins at QB, Redskins would love to land Meyer.

Meyer coached Redskins rookie Dwayne Haskins in college, so that is likely one of the reasons he attended Sunday’s game.
Meyer has been heavily linked to the Dallas Cowboys head coaching job, and it would seem like a no-brainer for him to choose them over Washington if he is offered a position by both teams. The Redskins are considered one of the most poorly run franchises in sports and are expected to have trouble landing a top head coaching candidate.
It would seem more reasonable for the Redskins to target another college coach they are said to be interested in, as it would be a major surprise if Meyer would want his first NFL head coaching gig to be with a team that has had so many problems over the years.
