Utah hires Urban Meyer Assessing the impact on the 15th anniversary plus the Hotline’s ranking of greatest coaching hires

Utah athletic director Chris Hill opened his front door and was greeted by his wife, Kathy, bubbling over with excitement. “Red alert,” she screamed. “Urban’s coming! Urban’s coming!” Hill was only mildly surprised by the news, having interview Urban Meyer for the Utes’ coaching vacancy earlier in the day at the Denver Airport. The meeting went well, so well that Hill hoped Meyer would fly to Salt Lake City to meet the board of trustees and finalize the deal. Meyer pushed back.
