As we all know by now, once again, Urban Meyer is without a job, and while college is likely his next choice, Georgia football should avoid him at all costs.
Not that Meyer and Georgia are even communicating, but still, the Dawgs should stay away from his toxic vibes because negative things seem to follow him.
This discussion is pure speculation, but now that Meyer is no longer the Jacksonville Jaguars, he will likely be looking for his next landing place in college football, but who will bring him into their program?
Georgia football won’t touch Urban Meyer with a 10-foot pole because the Dawgs don’t need that negativity.
After all the stuff Meyer did during his short time in the NFL will likely eliminate any possibility of him getting another job in the NFL. His actions could also cause some teams to question whether he should coach a college team again or not.
Sure, he did a great job at Florida and Ohio State, but college football is changing by the year, so I’m not sure Meyer will be able to do his old tricks anymore.
Someone could take the chance on him by bringing Meyer on as an offensive consultant, like Steve Sarkisian at Alabama, but at the same time, maybe it’s time for him to take a step back and be an average citizen.
He is a great football coach, but it was evident from his actions this year, Meyer doesn’t feel the same about the sport like he used to. College is a different animal, and while he has proven himself to be successful, Meyer comes with a lot of baggage.
It’s time for Georgia football to evolve its offense, but the Dawgs aren’t desperate enough to turn to Meyer. The Dawgs’ offense doesn’t need that kind of drama on staff, and they aren’t that bad to turn to this tainted man.
Georgia’s coaches and players hold themselves to a certain standard, and Meyer doesn’t come close to meeting that expectation. So while Meyer will likely be a hot commodity who teams go after, most teams will probably steer clear of him, and they should.
In my opinion, a team has to be desperate that their offense can’t handle what they’re doing to bring in Meyer. I’m not taking away what he has done because Meyer is a great coach who can get the most out of players, but at the same time, he is toxic.
Georgia football will evolve its offense, but it will thankfully be without Meyer because the Dawgs aren’t about that lifestyle and aren’t that desperate.
