One of the biggest stories in college football right now involves Urban Meyer and the next chapter of his career. While the former Ohio State head coach hasn't made any public comments about returning to coaching, it sounds like he'll have several suitors if he's interested.

On Monday, the news broke that Florida State has interest in making Meyer its next coach. Sources told The Spun that Brian Kelly is also a target for the Seminoles.

Meyer has also been linked to the USC job in the past.

Even though Meyer hasn't said anything about potentially taking the job at Florida State, former Florida Gator Ahmad Black decided to chime in. Black played at Florida under Meyer from 2007-10, winning a national championship.

Black went on Twitter to refute the idea of Meyer going to Florida State, tweeting "Lol the way he talked about FSU, I highly doubt this one."

Check it out:

Considering the rivalry between the Gators and Seminoles, it's not surprising that Meyer wasn't fond of Florida State back then.

If the Seminoles do truly want to make Meyer their next coach, the program would have to quickly abandon their experiment with Willie Taggart. In two seasons as the head coach, the Seminoles have only won eight games.

We'll continue to provide updates on Meyer's potential return to coaching, but for now, it would be a surprise if he ends up at Florida State.
