Urban Meyer Wants To Be Next Dallas Cowboys Head Coach

Urban Meyer wants to be the next Dallas Cowboys head coach, and he is not going to be coy about it.

In preparation for this past weekend’s slate of college football games, the current Fox analyst and former Ohio State coach was asked about Oklahoma head coach, Lincoln Riley.

More specifically, Colin Cowherd pressed Meyer on whether he believed Riley would take the Cowboys head coaching gig if Jason Garrett was fired.

“Pure speculation, because I know [Riley], but I don’t know him like that, but that’s the one [job],” Meyer said.

“That’s the New York Yankees, that’s the Dallas Cowboys, that’s the one.

“Great city, you got Dak Prescott, you got Zeke Elliott, you got a loaded team, and I can’t speak for [Riley] obviously—I hate to even speculate—because I don’t know him, that’s really not fair, but to me, that’s the one job in professional football that you kind of say, ‘I gotta go do that.’”

Given how effusive Meyer’s praise for the Cowboys job was, Cowherd followed up by asking him if he would be interested in it.

“Absolutely. Absolutely,” he replied.

“That one? Yes.”

Garrett is currently in his final year with Dallas, and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has given no indication that he wants to offer him an extension.

With the team currently sitting at 4-3 on the season, Garrett’s future — and by extension, Meyer’s and Riley’s — will depend heavily on how the Cowboys close out the year.
