Terry McLaurin has explanation for Urban Meyer’s attendance at Redskins game
Washington Redskins wide receiver Terry McLaurin threw some cold water on those Urban Meyer-to-Washington rumors that emerged Sunday.
Speculation ran wild after Meyer was seen attending the game against the Philadelphia Eagles, reportedly as the guest of owner Dan Snyder. McLaurin, however, had a different story: Meyer was his guest, and the coach had come to support McLaurin and Dwayne Haskins, both of whom played for Meyer at Ohio State.
Redskins rookie WR Terry McLaurin said Urban Meyer attended today’s game as his guest. McLaurin said Meyer was here to support him and Dwayne Haskins, who he coached at Ohio State. Not about Skins coaching job.

To be clear, it may be that the Redskins would like to hire Meyer as their head coach. We don’t really know. Another team linked to him may not be as interested as they initially seemed, which could open the door. Meyer would also be a big PR win for a Washington organization that doesn’t get many of those. Regardless of who Meyer was the guest of Sunday, the rumors are unlikely to quiet down now.
