Everyone is anticipating Urban Meyer becoming USC's new coach after this season. One person in particular is his former ESPN colleague Mark May, who believes it’s basically a done deal. And he says that his job at FOX was the first step to making it all happen, per CBS Sports Radio...

“His wife has been measuring for drapes with a tape measurer in Clay Helton’s office the last few weeks,” May joked on The DA Show. “Why does a guy, Urban Meyer – where he already worked for us at ESPN when I was at ESPN, he’s been there a couple years, he knows the situation, how to work through ESPN and their policies and procedures, and he knows all the producers and directors and he’s got a familiarity there and he’s only an hour-and-a-half flight from there – and he decides to go a three-hour flight from Columbus to L.A.”

“He’s coached at Utah, he’s recruited California, he knows how to recruit that area, his studio is less than 40 minutes from USC’s campus and he can go to high school games every Thursday and Friday night when he’s in Southern California,” May said. “The writing is on the wall, unfortunately, for Clay Helton unless they run the table and get to the Rose Bowl this year, and I don’t think that’s going to happen. I can almost guarantee you that’s the job he’s going to take. If you look at his track record, he doesn’t go to a place that doesn’t have a good quarterback that’s already established.”

“Once he took that job (at Fox Sports), that was the first thing that I had in my mind,” May said of Meyer taking over at USC. “Why are you taking that job? Because you know the situation that Clay Helton is under. You know that USC is a great place to coach. You know that they’ve got a great heritage and a great history there, and you know that you can draw players there. They’ve got like four quarterbacks that can play major college football apparently.”

“He’s going to step into a situation where he’s going to be solid at the quarterback position and he’s got some great athletes at the skill positions,” May said. “All he’s got to do is get a good recruiting class under him. It’s the same thing he did at Ohio State. It’s almost a turnkey operation.”

Urb had a fake heart attack to get out of SEC, then he and his wife had a major indiscretion to get out of big 10. Now on to pac 12 where he belongs. He plans to bring in O.J. to help in decision making and recruiting.

Not surprised. Especially when you realize that shite seems to follow him everywhere he goes. He is not a moral guy by any means. I may just have more respect for the midget than I do for CUM.

Well I'd like it if it does happen. The PAC needs a dominant team. They are so far behind both BIGs and the SEC that it's not even funny. USC is a blue blood that you expect to be good all the time. Texas is slowly but surely clawing back to the top and if Nebraska had any decent talent outside of their QB, they would be back already.

He'll win, he'll leave amidst controversy, he'll take some time off, he'll move on to the next opportunity. It what CUM does.

He'll win, he'll have "health problems," he'll leave amidst controversy, he'll take some time off, he'll move on to the next opportunity.
