Urban Meyer 911 call

Multiple sources confirmed today that Meyer has reiterated his intention to take the job during recent phone calls to multiple, prominent former Ohio State football players.

Sources close to Ohio State said today that an announcement on Meyer’s hire by the school will come next Monday or Tuesday though nothing has still been signed between the two parties.
