Urban Meyer's Wife Reacts To Michigan Job Speculation

Believe it or not, there's actually been some Urban Meyer-to-Michigan talk on social media in recent days. It's ridiculous, of course, but a photoshop of Meyer in Michigan gear has been circulated by some Wolverines fans with a #WeWantUrban hashtag.

Betting odds have since been released for Jim Harbaugh's potential replacement in Ann Arbor. Meyer made the list.

Meyer did at one point have interest in the Michigan job. The Ann Arbor program was one of three jobs (along with Ohio State and Notre Dame) he was allowed to take without asking his wife.

Of course, this was before he coached the Buckeyes.

Urban Meyer's wife, Shelley Meyer, is not a fan of this. She reacted to the photo of her husband in Michigan gear. "Doesn’t even fit," she said simply.

This is all just social media fun and no one really thinks Meyer getting hired at Michigan is realistic (we hope).

The former Ohio State head coach won't even say the word "Michigan," after all.
