There have been rumored reports since last weekend that former Florida Gators coach Urban Meyer will be the next coach at Ohio State.

Websites, newspapers, radio and television stations around Columbus, Ohio, home of Ohio State have reported that Meyer has agreed in principle to become the Buckeyes coach next week.

Meyer is continuing to say there has been no offer or no deal accepted.

The Buckeyes are currently being coached by interim coach Luke Fickell, who will lead the team against the Michigan Wolverines on Saturday at noon.

OSU is currently at 6-5, their worst season since Jim Tressel’s first year in 2001 at 7-5. If they lose Saturday, they’ll be 6-6, the worst record since John Cooper’s team posted that record in 1999.

Meyer is no stranger to Ohio or the Buckeyes, having grown up in Ashtabula, grew up a Buckeyes fan, worked on Earle Bruce’s staff in the 1980′s as has such admiration of Woody Hayes, the legendary coach, that he has his picture displayed in his home.

Meyer has won two national titles in 2006 and 2008 while at Florida.
