Urban Meyer wants to return to television in the fall
During an interview on The Tim May Podcast, Urban Meyer was asked about a possible return to a role similar to his days at Fox when he was a college football analyst. His comments can be heard here at 31:51.
“It’s all still in conversation,” he said. “I love Fox, I love their team, I love their guys. There’s nothing finalized yet, but yeah, I’m planning on going back and doing it. I really enjoyed it I like to celebrate those who play it [football]celebrate those who train it, it’s a great game.
He added that he plans to be back in the fall to do “something like that” referring to his time at Fox. Meyer was an analyst with the network after retiring from coaching in 2018. He came out of retirement to coach the Jaguars in 2021 but was fired before the end of the season after several off-field issues.

Meyer allegedly created a toxic environment in Jacksonville where it was common for him to belittle both his players and his assistant coaches. He regularly threatened coaches and players that he would fire or cut them and was reportedly even unfamiliar with some of the NFL’s biggest names like Aaron Donald and Deebo Samuel.
Among the first public issues that arose for him during the season was when a video went viral of Meyer dancing in a bar with a woman who was not his wife in Ohio after a week 4 loss to the Bengals. He coached the Jaguars to a 2-11 record before being fired in December shortly after it was revealed he kicked Jacksonville kicker Josh Lambo.
