Urban Meyer will not be the next Arizona head football coach.

Who wants to be the next Arizona head football coach? Not Urban Meyer, apparently. Reports claim that the former two-time BCS championship winning Florida head football coach had talked about the position  with Arizona athletic director Greg Byrne. Meyer has since decided he's just not into the idea of coaching the Wildcats.

"According to a Tuesday report from the New York Times, Byrne and Urban Meyer met in Miami "early last week" to gauge Meyer's potential interest in the Wildcats' head coaching position. The meeting ended with Meyer reportedly "intrigued" by the potential offer.

Apparently that interest didn't last long; Meyer then telephoned Byrne Monday to tell him he "was not going to pursue the job," the Times reported."

So what are Meyer's future plans? It probably doesn't involve going the John Gruden route at ESPN. Meyer has been constantly linked to the Ohio State head coaching job ever since Jim Tressel's resignation. Talk of Meyer replacing Joe Paterno at Penn State was brewing even before the Jerry Sandusky  scandal broke. Wherever he lands, the hype macing is bound to be work overtime.
