Could Urban Meyer really be the next head coach at USC?
If Reggie Bush and Matt Leinart had their way, Meyer would be on the sidelines for the Trojans as head football coach.
Bush, Leinart, and Meyer, along with Brady Quinn will be on Fox’s new College Football pregame show.
But Bush and Leinart would rather see Meyer coaching football and not just talking about it.
The former Trojan and Super Bowl champion Bush spoke with Arash Markazi of the LA Times and made his intentions known that he would be recruiting Meyer to USC.
“We’ll definitely be recruiting [Meyer],” Bush said. “What makes you think we won’t be recruiters? Nothing is off the table.”
Bush attempted to walk back those comments saying Wednesday to CBS Sports that his recruitment of Urban Meyer was made in a,
“Me recruiting Urban Meyer? I’m still trying to learn college football.”
Joking or not, Bush isn’t necessarily wrong in wanting Meyer over Helton for obvious reasons.
The Trojans went 5-7 last season under Helton, their first losing season since 2000.
Patience is running thin for Helton and if the Trojan faithful have their way, they’d make room for the multi-time National Champion Urban Meyer in a heartbeat.
