Looks like the ole Nittany Lions of Penn State are looking ahead and have apparently contacted former Gator coach Urban Meyer...
quote:Urban is calling the Penn State game against Iowa this weekend on ABC/ESPN. Awwwwwkward. This is will never happen because let's face it, Joe Pa will live forever.
"Seasoned Ohio State reporter Jeff Rapp reported on Friday that Penn State contacted Meyer about the possibility of pursuing him as a new head coach back on September 25, when the ESPN analysts was on campus to interview Michael Mauti for a featured segment. According to a source close to Meyer, there are three jobs that would have Meyer jump at the opportunity to return to coaching: Ohio State, Texas and Penn State."
“Urban would love to have that job,” the source said. “Keep in mind, though, that he doesn’t want to be known as the guy who forced out Joe Paterno. It would have to be done in the right way. I think they could appeal to Joe Pa’s best interests and allow him to be the king-maker.”
