Whenever there is a major job opening in college football, three-time national champion head coach Urban Meyer is almost always tossed out as a potential candidate, and that was the case once again when Michigan State fired head coach Mel Tucker. But it doesn’t sound like Meyer has any interest in ever returning to college football.

During a recent appearance at the Knoxville Quarterback Club, Urban Meyer was asked if he could potentially come out of retirement once again to coach another college team, and he had quite a blunt response to the question: “No desire.”

“I am good,” Meyer said according to the Knoxville News Sentinel. “I never really took a day off. People, when I say that, they scratch their head. I am like I never took a day off. I had some health stuff go on. I became addicted to sleeping pills. I was just a maniac worker. … So no. No desire.”

It’s a pretty clear and firm response to the question, and the football world had a lot to say about it on social media as a result.

Meyer most recently coached for the Jacksonville Jaguars where he was fired before one full season on the job.
