Tebow’s Former Coach, Urban Meyer, Says he Still Wants Another Shot at the NFL


Tim Tebow will not let his NFL dream die. Don’t believe us?

Ask his former coach.

“He wants another shot at playing,” Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer said at his press conference on Thursday. “I hope he gets it. If not, I think he’s going to continue what he’s doing (on ESPN).”

Tebow was in Columbus as part of his analyst duties for ESPN ahead of the Buckeyes’ trip to the College Football Playoff and a Sugar Bowl date with Alabama next month. After taking care of their on-air responsibilities, Meyer managed to coax the Heisman Trophy winner into speaking to Ohio State players about their upcoming game for a few minutes as well.

The message, as one would expect from Tebow, was quite positive and one Meyer hopes will resonate with his current group as the Buckeyes prepare to face old foe Nick Saban and his Crimson Tide.

“I love Tim. Tim’s a two-time national champion. Two players (of mine) have that same bizarre work ethic and toughness, it’s John Simon and Tim,” Meyer added. “The players know that it’s different. I had very few jerseys hanging in my office, and his is one of them because of the relentless pursuit of excellence and the way he treats people. It was a great, great conversation with our players. Kind of on the spot.”
