Meyer stopped by The Herd with Colin Cowherd on Friday, where he was asked if there was any truth to the rumors of Oklahoma's Lincoln Riley potentially joining the Dallas Cowboys coaching staff. Meyer took this opportunity to throw his name into the discussion.
"Pure speculation because I know him, but I don’t know him like that, but that’s the one [job]," Meyer said. "That’s New York Yankees, that’s the Dallas Cowboys. That’s the one. Great city. They got Dak Prescott, Zeke Elliott. You got a loaded team. And I can’t speak for him obviously, I hate to even speculate because I don’t know him, that’s really not fair, but to me, that’s the one job in professional football that you say, ‘I got to go do that.'"
This prompted Cowherd to ask if he would be interested in the gig if Dallas called him.
"Absolutely. Absolutely. That one? Yes," Meyer answered.
Jerry Jones hasn't alluded to the Cowboys' current coach, Jason Garrett, being on the hot seat, but he's on the last year of his contract. The team is sitting at 3-3 with two straight losses to the Packers and Jets. He's never made it past the divisional round of the playoffs during his tenure.
