Urban Meyer's may still return to coaching, but we know for sure he won't be coaching at a particular school to the north.

Meyer firmly and bluntly shot down any chance that he'd accept a coaching job at Michigan during a Wednesday appearance on 97.1 The Fan's Carpenter & Rothman.

“No, that’s not going to happen,” Meyer said after a long pause. “That’s... That’s not going to happen.”

This shouldn't exactly come as a shock for the guy with eight pairs of Gold Pants who wouldn't allow blue markers or pens in his football facility and still won't even refer to the school by name as a television analyst.

As far as a return to coaching in general, Meyer did not flat rule it out, but said that he and his family are very happy in retirement and that he is content and enjoying his work in television and in Ohio State's athletic department.

“Three months ago, I had a problem,” Meyer said. “What if I’m sitting here in October and I can’t stand what I’m doing? But I love what I’m doing. My family loves what I’m doing and those are really the only people who matter to me.”
