Urban Meyer Not Joining Dallas Cowboys As Coach
Urban Meyer is not joining the Dallas Cowboys as coach.
This week college football insider Emmanuel Acho appeared on Get Up and discussed the likelihood of Meyer ultimately ending up as Jerry Jones’ next head coach.
In Acho’s mind, it is simply not going to happen.
Because he doesn’t believe that Meyer will like the lack of control that comes standard when you become head coach of the Cowboys.
“Jerry Jones ain’t going to let you be the chef,” Acho said.
“He’s going to come in there and (say), ‘Huh, let’s add some more salt to that, Urban, let’s add some pepper to that, how about some parsley.’ Urban’s going to be like, ‘Chill, I got this.’ So when you talk about the guys that could be the next predecessor as the next Cowboys head coach, this shouldn’t be Urban, not a good recipe.”
Urban Meyer has a recipe, but Jerry Jones won’t let him cook.

Meyer left Ohio State last season and agreed to become a Fox college football analyst.
The idea was that he would take a yearlong break, and then return to coaching somewhere like USC.
Unfortunately, USC opted to retain Clay Helton – leaving Meyer without a landing spot come season’s end.
With no other appealing college football vacancies, multiple people close to Meyer have suggested that he is now eying the professional ranks.
Dallas would make a lot of sense given how much talent is on the roster, but Jones is a tough guy to deal with.
It is difficult to envision a scenario where two tough personalities like Meyer and Jones are able to set their egos aside from the greater good of a franchise.
Is it possible that Meyer ends up with the Cowboys next year? Of course. Anything is possible.
Is it likely, though? Based on everything we are seeing and hearing thus far, the answer is no.
