During an interview on The Tim May Podcast, Urban Meyer was asked about possibly returning to a role similar to his days at Fox when he was a college football analyst. His remarks can be heard here at the 31:51 mark.
“That’s all still in conversation,” he said. “I love Fox, I love her team, I love her boys. There’s nothing that’s finalized yet, but yeah, I’m going to go back and do it. I really enjoyed it. I enjoy celebrating those who play it [football]far those who coach it, it’s a great match. ”
He added that he plans to return in the fall “something like that” when he refers to his stint at Fox. Meyer was an analyst with the network after retiring from coaching in 2018. He retired to coach the Jaguars in 2021, but was fired before the season ended after several problems off the field.

Meyer was reported to have created a toxic environment in Jacksonville where it was common for him to downsize both his players and assistant coaches. He would regularly threaten coaches and players that he would fire or cut them and would not even be familiar with some of the biggest names in the NFL like Aaron Donald and Deebo Samuel.
Among the first public affairs that arose for him during the season came when a video of Meyer dancing at a bar with a woman who was not his wife in Ohio after a Week 4 loss to the Bengals. He coached the Jaguars to a 2-11 record before being fired in December shortly after it emerged he kicked Jacksonville kicker Josh Lambo.
