If he will ever get back into coaching again:
“I don’t know. I don’t know that but everybody keeps asking me that. I was watching that Super Bowl and sitting there, if you could just do the part of coaching that is allowed and not have to worry about all of that nonsense that has really developed in the college game, that is what I am familiar with. It is out of control with that stuff right now and we have got to get that back on track. 25 years ago, and I am sure you know, if you had to deal with some of the stuff you are dealing with the off-the-field, the agent issues, the violation issues and all the garbage that is out there right now I certainly would not have gotten into coaching. Hopefully with the powers that be and all the right people, I know one thing the NFL Commissioner has got a great outlook the way he is attacking the NFL right now and trying to bring respect and order, and I just love the way he is approaching it. [Emphasis added. ] If college football gets that we will have a chance to get back to that great game we all love.”
Most of the reactions to this have been about the “garbage” part of the quote, but what I’m reading there is a man who’s telling the NFL that he’s soon going to be ready to give coaching on Sundays a shot. Because it’s clear that when Roger Goodell gets done, there won’t be any off-the-field problems in the pros.
When – not if – Meyer gets back into coaching, is anyone going to call him on his bullshit?
