Urban Meyer is the most prominent name linked to some of the NFL's head-coaching vacancies, and he was expected to make a jump to the next level this offseason after a storied college career. However, despite making preparations and outlining his contract demands, Meyer could spurn a job offer.

The college coaching legend is reportedly stringing the Jacksonville Jaguars along as he makes up his mind on pursuing an NFL gig.

It's not exactly encouraging for prospective teams that Meyer doesn't seem fully set on taking a job if it's offered, although if they want the collegiate legend, they'll likely have to wait for him to make up his mind.

The Jagurs are the frontrunner to land Meyer, but the Los Angeles Chargers have also emerged as a suitor. The three-time NCAA champion head coach has also been brought up for the New York Jets' vacancy, too.

In what seemed like a likely outcome, Meyer's NFL future now seems up in air. Perhaps none of the available openings are enough to sway the storied coach out of retirement just yet. The opportunity for Meyer is certainly there if he wants to take it.
