Former Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer has been asked repeatedly this offseason if he's done coaching, and while he's adamant that he "thinks" he's going to stay retired, many in the industry don't believe him. Thursday, Brad Crawford over at 247 Sports listed out eight possible spots he could wind up if he chooses to return.

A few weeks back, we put together a list of five schools that Meyer could consider in the future - Texas, Oklahoma, USC, Notre Dame and Ohio State again. Crawford's list includes a few.

Crawford lists USC, Notre Dame and Oklahoma - even going as far as to say there's a 20% chance he eventually leads the Sooners.

The other five schools? Auburn, Florida State, LSU, South Carolina and, well, let's just say the last is a surprise. You can see it here.

Crawford, like many, seems to think that USC makes the most sense:

This is an automatic wins for both parties, no? Meyer steps into a former recruiting mecca in need of new blood to get things rolling again out West. With Clay Helton's seat scorching and USC's quarterback of the future already on campus in J.T. Daniels, Meyer would have a win-now opportunity with the Trojans should the program cuts ties with Helton after the 2019 season.

It remains to be seen if we've seen the last of Meyer on the sidelines. For this coming season, you can catch him on FOX's college football Saturday morning pregame show.
