Urban Meyer has once again been asked about the possibility of the Michigan head coaching job opening up and whether or not the former Ohio State coach would consider taking it.

The former Buckeyes' head coach shot down any speculation earlier in the week and he refused to even talk about it on FOX today.

"Hey coach, if that job ever came open, would you ever contemplate taking it?" a smiling Brady Quinn asked Meyer on FOX's college football kickoff show.

Meyer, smiling back, just said "next, next" trying to get host Rob Stone to move to another topic.

It was pretty funny:

Meyer shot down any speculation during an appearance on 97.1 The Fan earlier this week.

“No, that’s not going to happen,” Meyer said. “That’s...That’s not going to happen.”

Some sports books had given Meyer not-crazy odds of taking the Michigan job if Jim Harbaugh ended up getting fired. There were also some Wolverines fans circulating a photoshopped picture of Meyer in Michigan gear.

Of course, though, it's not going to happen.

Meyer did have some high praise for Michigan during this morning's show, predicting "at least" nine wins for the Wolverines following the embarrassing loss to Wisconsin.

Michigan improved to 3-1 on the season with a blowout win over Rutgers today.
