College football analyst Paul Finebaum appeared on ESPN’s First Take Wednesday afternoon. While discussing the future of Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly and the university’s football program, he said:
“If Notre Dame was wise they would buy Brian out. Let him go to the NFL…I’m sure he could ruin some franchise there. And bring Urban Meyer in.”-ESPN Analyst Paul Finebaum appearing on First Take
There has been a lot of media speculation regarding Meyer’s future job prospects during the last month. The three-time National Championship coach has been tied to suitors such as USC, Michigan, the National Football League’s Dallas Cowboys, and now Notre Dame where he once coached as an assistant.
It’s important to note Meyer almost took a job in South Bend prior to being hired for the Florida job 13 years ago. After retiring from coaching last year while at Ohio State due to health concerns, Urban has managed to stay relevant as an analyst for FOX Sports. It’s uncertain if he will exit the broadcast set and return to the sidelines at this point in time.
