Urban Meyer shoots down rumor of LSU contact
Just in case you needed any reassurance, Urban Meyer does not have any plans to leave Ohio State for LSU.
The Buckeye coach was reportedly among coaches set to be contacted by LSU to replace Les Miles, who was fired on Sunday. Meyer was among several names that the school allegedly planned to reach out to, including Nick Saban.
And as expected, Meyer erased those rumors on Tuesday:
On reports LSU might contact @OSUCoachMeyer Meyer said "No, I have not been contacted. And I am going to be the coach at Ohio State."

Meyer is an Ohio native who hasn’t been seriously linked to any jobs since arriving at Ohio State. Though he admittedly thought about the possibility of the NFL at one point, talks never got serious.
The Buckeye coach is 53-4 since arriving in Columbus. He’ll look to make it 54-4 on Saturday when the No. 2 Buckeyes host Rutgers to kick off B1G play.
