I’m not a candidate,” Meyer said during a conference call on Tuesday. “明显, I spent six years of my life there, so great respect for Notre Dame, and as I do USC, 加州大学洛杉矶分校, like we talked about (earlier in the call). But I’m committed to the Jaguars and doing the best we can to turn this thing around.

After USC fired former head coach Clay Helton back in September, Meyer immediately shut down any speculation that he would become the next coach of the Trojans.

The Trojans hired Lincoln Riley away from Oklahoma on Monday. Meyer said earlier this seasonthere’s no chancehe would take the USC job. He insisted he’s in Jacksonville for the long haul.

I’m here and committed to try to build an organization,” Meyer said at the time.

Meyer was one of the names mentioned once the Notre Dame position opened up, especially since he spent five years (1996-2000) as receivers coach of the Fighting Irish and even called the head coaching gig at Notre Dame adream jobwhile he was at Florida in 2008.

然而, it appears that Meyer is committed to the Jaguars for the foreseeable future.
