I am committed to ESPN and will not pursue any coaching opportunities this fall. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the people at ESPN this spring and remain very excited about my role with the network this fall. Jim Tressel has been a respected friend and colleague for a long time. I wish Jim and his family the very best now and in the future.

Urban Meyer's statement regarding Jim Tressel leaving the Ohio State Buckeyes and about what his future plans are. Notice the "this fall" part of the statement. Very telling indeed. Meyer is no idiot when it comes to picking a program and there is no way he is going to coach Ohio State unless he knows exactly what he is getting into.
