The Dallas Cowboys aren't currently looking for a new head coach, but if that job should come open in the next few months, there's already at least one well-qualified candidate who would definitely be interested in filling the position, and that's Urban Meyer.
Although the former Ohio State coach has never held a job at the pro level, he certainly sounded fascinated by the idea of coaching the Cowboys during a recent interview on "The Herd with Colin Cowherd."
The conversation about the Cowboys coaching job started with Cowherd asking Meyer whether not he thought Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley might be interested in potentially filling the position, and while giving his answer, Meyer basically started gushing about how amazing it would be to coach the Cowboys.
"Pure speculation, because I know [Riley], but I don't know him like that, but that's the one [job]," Meyer said. "That's the New York Yankees, that's the Dallas Cowboys, that's the one. Great city, you got Dak Prescott, you got Zeke Elliott, you got a loaded team, and I can't speak for [Riley] obviously -- I hate to even speculate -- because I don't know him, that's really not fair, but to me, that's the one job in professional football that you kind of say, 'I gotta go do that.'"
After Meyer mentioned that it's the "one job" that any coach would have to consider, Cowherd asked him if he would be open to taking it if the Cowboys called.
"Absolutely. Absolutely," Meyer said. "That one? Yes."
