Sporting News Michael McCarthy reports today that Fox Sports is nearing a deal to make Urban Meyer their lead college football analyst.

From the Sporting News report:

The network envisions Meyer as the kind of big-time coaching name/TV talent who could potentially put its “Fox College Football Pregame” show on par with Kirk Herbstreit’s “College GameDay” at ESPN.

By joining Fox Sports, Urban would be reuniting with his good friend Cris Carter who is with the network.

Our President since 2008, Scott oversees daily operations. An outstanding high school athlete (he wrote that), he chose to go pro in something other than playing football (i.e. he couldn't break a 5.0 40 yard dash). Prior to purchasing FootballScoop, Scott served as a vice president of The Shaw Group, a Fortune 500 company, for eight years.
