College Football Coaching Changes as Bowl Season Nears
The timing of Urban Meyer's retirement from coaching took some people by surprise and it begged questions about whether this was about stepping away from Ohio State or the sidelines entirely. Meyer left very little room for interpretation during his press conference and yet, there is still plenty of doubt among fans and even those who cover the sport of college football.
ESPN's Edward Aschoff is as close to the sport as anyone so we asked him for his impressions of Meyer's "goodbye" and a prediction as to whether we would see the three-time National Champion ever coach again. Edward also weighs in on the college coaches to make the potential jump to the NFL and which bowl games are truly worth your time.
Kliff Kingsbury was a hot name despite his firing from Texas Tech and now that he has been named USC's offensive coordinator, there is only one really consistently talked about college coach for any NFL opening. That is Oklahoma's Lincoln Riley and with the second straight Sooner winning the Heisman Trophy, it's hard to imagine Riley's stock being any higher than it is right now. Riley has Oklahoma in the College Football Playoff for the second time in his two years in Norman.
