The first Urban Meyer appearance on the collegiate football coaching scene was as a graduate assistant at Ohio State University for two years. He also spent one year as a defensive backs coach at Saint Xavier High School in Cincinnati. For the next 13 years, Meyer was an assistant coach at Illinois State, Colorado State, and Notre Dame. The first Urban Meyer appearance as a head coach was at Bowling Green State University, where he led the Falcons to 17 wins in two years. Meyer’s first season with them saw the greatest turnaround in the NCAA, earning him Mid-American Conference Coach of the Year honors in return. In August 2003, there was an Urban Meyer appearance on the American Football Monthly’s annual “Hot List” of Division I football coaches.
Meyer’s coaching career includes an MWC Championship in 2003 and 2004 with the University of Utah, where he was also hailed National Coach of the Year by The Sporting News, as well as a National Championship and a SEC Championship with the University of Florida in 2006, where he was also named Coach of the Year.

Meyer earned a master’s degree in sports administration in 1988. He was also selected in the 13th round, as a shortstop, by the Atlanta Braves in the 1982 major league baseball draft. Meyer spent two seasons playing minor league baseball in the Braves organization. This proves that football isn’t Meyers’s only game, and his influence can go far beyond the boundaries of the gridiron. From masters degree, to pro baseball player, to national championship winning coach, the list of Urban Meyers speaker topics extends far beyond the X’s and O’s of football.
