Urban Meyer’s name has once again surfaced in connection to head coaching rumors, this time with his name being mentioned in connection with Florida State.
It should be noted that Willie Taggart is still the head coach of the Seminoles. Though FSU is under .500 with him at the helm, no decision has been made on his future. However, a report from Monday already indicated that Meyer would be FSU’s top target should the program decide to move on from Taggart.
On Tuesday, FSU AD David Coburn addressed those rumors. In comments shared by The Tallahassee Democrat, Coburn vehemently denied that a decision has been made on Taggart.
He even used some powerful imagery to explain that Meyer would not be considered a candidate for an opening, much less a top target:
“If Coach (Taggart) were hit by a bus tomorrow, we would not target Coach Meyer, period,” Coburn said. “I say that with all due respect to Coach Meyer, but we would not target Steve Spurrier either.”
That definitely seems to put an end to those rumors for Meyer.
