Ohio State's Meyer: No desire to coach in the NFL for now

DALLAS (AP) - After winning his third national title, Ohio State coach Urban Meyer says he has no desire to coach in the NFL.

Well, for now.

Meyer spoke Tuesday morning at a news conference, the championship trophy at his side a few hours after leading the Buckeyes (14-1) to a 42-20 win over Oregon.

When asked if he would ever consider moving to the pros, Meyer said, "Not right now. I've got a commitment to Ohio State and these players. I love what I'm doing. Not right now."

Meyer has a coaching record of 142-26 in stints at Bowling Green, Utah, Florida and Ohio State. He won two national titles at Florida and, with the victory Monday night, becomes only the second coach to win national titles at different schools. The other is Nick Saban.
