Urban Meyer has had no contact with Nebraska, per report
Nebraska fans made it clear on FOX Big Noon Kickoff Saturday that Urban Meyer would be welcomed into Lincoln. Well, if you consider that group to speak for all of Husker nation anyway.
Then on Saturday CBS’ Dennis Dodd reported there was contact between the university and Meyer. It seems that was not the case after all.
Wherever you stand, it seems Meyer is not even considering the vacant position despite praising the Huskers Saturday. ESPN’s Pete Thamel reported the news early Sunday morning.
Source: There’s been no contact between Nebraksa and Urban Meyer. He’s expected to remain at FOX and not pursue coaching opportunities.

Now, let’s be honest – we’ve head this spiel from Meyer before. It still seemed unlikely at best for Meyer to return to coaching for the Cornhuskers.
Nebraska’s likely list of candidates should include Bill O’Brien, Lance Leipold, Mark Stoops or Matt Campbell.
