HERO Sports is counting down the 100 days until the kickoff of the 2018 college football season on Saturday, Aug. 25, with daily trivia. Each day, from May 17 through Aug. 24, we'll publish one college football trivia question.
What did Urban Meyer call his dream job?
Urban Meyer was the highly sought-after head coach of Utah in 2004 after blowing through the Mountain West for two seasons. He left the Utes for the "best job," not his "dream job." The best job was Florida, whose new president was former Utah president Bernie Machen, with whom Meyer reportedly had a handshake agreement to become the Gators' head coach.
While at Florida, Meyer again admitted he wasn't in his dream job. What was his dream job?
Notre Dame wanted Urban Meyer as Tyrone Willingham's replacement in 2004. And since it was widely known to be Meyer's dream job, it appeared to be a done deal. Nope. Meyer rejected the Irish's advances and took the Florida job, leaving Notre Dame to hire Charlie Weis.
Four years later, Meyer said Notre Dame was "still his dream job," though his wife said last year that he actually had three dream jobs: Notre Dame, Ohio State and Michigan.
