Urban Meyer Shot Down Cleveland Browns Megadeal Rumors

Kyle Koster

A report on Chat Sports on Friday claimed that the Cleveland Browns plan to fire Mike Pettine and attempt to hire Urban Meyer after the season. If that seems like a tough sell, that’s because it’s a very tough sell. Of all the places Meyer could go next, Cleveland is far from the most attractive. But, hey, stranger things have happened. The dream deal would reportedly be the largest coaching contract in NFL history and would also include equity in the franchise.

Meyer predictably shot down the notion that he has any interest in the job or that the Browns are trying to lure him away from the Buckeyes.

Ohio State putting out a statement to address the rumor is a bit surprising, considering how skeptical the general public is about Meyer trading perennial success for a rebuilding project.
