USC reportedly intensifying their pursuit of ex-Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer

Former Michigan Wolverines nemesis Urban Meyer could soon find himself on the coaching sidelines again.

According to reports, Meyer is “undoubtedly” the Trojans’ top priority for a potential new coach and that USC is ready to do “whatever it takes” to bring him aboard.

With the resignation athletic director Lynn Swann this September and a sub-par record last year under coach Clay Helton, the Trojans would love to have the former Buckeyes and Florida Gators coach come out west and bring along his history of winning. He finished with a record of 82-9 with Ohio State with three Big Ten Titles; he also led the Gators to a 65-16 record in six years along with two national championships.

Only time will tell if Meyer can be enticed back into coaching.

“I’ve been in a fight for 33 years, and now you’re not in that fight,” Meyer said earlier in the year during a wide-ranging interview with Cleveland.com. “So how do you fulfill that fight? And I feel that every morning. Every morning. “It’s all about a win and a loss for 33 years. I mean every day was. Not just you’re getting ready for a game. No, no, no, no.

“You’re recruiting every day. You’re going against Alabama and Clemson every day, The Team Up North every day. Now you’re not. That’s the number one void, is you’re not in a fight.”

Currently, Meyer is a college football analyst for Fox Sports.
