The afterglow of Urban Meyer's failed Jacksonville tenure is still strong, meaning that most hight-level programs are staying away from the legendary college coach.

But Meyer is still just 57-years-old, leading some to believe that a potential return to Bowling Green could be in the cards.

However, per Dave Briggs of the Toledo Blade, Urban Meyer shot that idea down in a text conversation with the journalist.

'Wow. What a question,' Meyer texted. 'I do love BG. However, I could not see that happening. We are enjoying our lives and kids/grandkids.'

Meyer has stepped away from coaching a couple of times over the course of his career, so speculation will likely resume for the foreseeable future.

Urban Meyer and Bowling Green would seemingly be a hand-in-glove fit. Especially as a chance for the three-time national champion to rehabilitate his image following a disastrous stint with the Jaguars.

For now though, the former coach will enjoy the off-time with his family.
