In 2010, after six terrific seasons and two national championships with Florida, Urban Meyer retired. His retirement was short-lived, however, as he found himself on the Ohio State sidelines less than two years later.
Meyer announced earlier this week that he plans on retiring after the Buckeyes play in the upcoming Rose Bowl. But fans don’t seem to be buying Meyer’s story of retiring – and the sports books aren’t either.
Almost immediately after making the announcement, Meyer’s name was being speculated as a candidate for all kinds of jobs in college and the NFL.
According to odds from BetDSI, Meyer is a -300 bet on coaching again after he leaves Ohio State.
