Earlier this week, Sporting News reported that Fox Sports is close to a deal with former Ohio State coach Urban Meyer to make him its star college football analyst. According to the report, Meyer would have his choice to work either "as a color commentator in the game booth or as a studio analyst at Fox."

It's an interesting development regarding the former Buckeyes head coach who cited health concerns as his reason to step down from coaching Ohio State. If he lands this new job, he'll be working long hours and traveling a significant amount.

Meyer still has his job working with Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith in addition to teaching a class this semester.

If Meyer does land the Fox Sports gig, there's a real possibility he would call Michigan games. Fox primarily airs coverage of the Big Ten, Big 12 and Pac-12 conferences, and airs "The Game" between Michigan and Ohio State.

We're sure Michigan fans would be thrilled with listening to Urban Meyer break down the action between his former Ohio State Buckeyes and Jim Harbaugh's Michigan Wolverines.

Mark your calendars for November 30 when Michigan travels to Columbus to take on Ohio State in the final regular season game.
