Winning his 3rd national title with a second team has made Urban Meyer the most desirable coaching candidate in football.

Ohio State Buckeyes head coach Urban Meyer has no intention of going to the NFL at this time, he told reporters in a press conference on Tuesday.
Asked at a press conference this morning if he could leave Ohio State for the NFL, Meyer didn’t explicitly rule it out. For now, at least, he’s committed to his current team.
“Not right now. I have a commitment to Ohio State and these players,” Meyer said.
With Ohio State’s 42-20 win over the Oregon Ducks in the CFP National Championship Game, Meyer became the second coach in college football history to win a national title with two different schools. The other is Nick Saban, who has also heard the occasional overture of a return to the NFL.
Meyer has gained a reputation for being a coach who is always willing to take on a new challenge, and if the NFL comes calling with enough money, he may be tempted to move on eventually.
In three seasons with the Ohio State Buckeyes, Meyer has accumulated a 38-3 record, and a 24-0 record in the Big Ten during the regular season.
