Urban Meyer: 'We've got a helluva football coach in Cleveland now'

Urban Meyer was a baseball player in 1982.

One assumes he was ornery, passionate, peppery and, to opponents, annoying.

He was a 13th-round pick in one of the ripest baseball drafts ever conducted (Dwight Gooden, Barry Bonds, Bo Jackson, Barry Larkin, Randy Johnson to name some ... Jose Canseco and Bret Saberhagen were picked after Meyer).

By 1988, though, Meyer had gotten on with his life’s work. He had cut his football coaching teeth under Earle Bruce at Ohio State. After Bruce got fired, Meyer found himself at Illinois State, which is when he met Mike Pettine.

At the time, Pettine’s name was much bigger than Meyer’s, in that Pettine was the son of a famous high school coach.

As Meyer puts it now, of the dad, “He’s the Woody Hayes of Pennsylvania high school football.”


Didn't know that Pettine and Meyer where buddies from way back.

Pipeline from Columbus to Cleveland maybe Twisted Evil

I know some posters around here would absolutely love that and others would have a stroke.....but wouldn't be that big of a loss. J/K Laughing I'd send flowers. Razz

That is pretty interesting... I'll take that connection all day long over being the nephew of Mike Holmgren's friend...

Or he could of gone the safer route and said nothing and not attached his name to a pro HC doing a job with a history of turn over.

Just saying.
