Urban Meyer To Cowboys??

The Dallas Cowboys signed Wade Phillips to a 2-year deal, and Urban Meyer has said that he is happy as the head coach at Florida.

But that hasn't kept some in the SEC from using the possibility of an opening with the Dallas Cowboys to sway recruits away from Florida.

Mack Brown, not that one but a running back out of Lithonia (Ga.) Martin Luther King, told the Orlando Sentinel that one recruiter told him Meyer had a spot at Valley Ranch waiting for him.

"They would say, he's tricking ya'll -- he's going to the NFL to coach the Dallas Cowboys," Brown told the paper. "I was like 'What?' There's no way."

Brown wouldn't say who said that, but Tennessee and Florida State had been on his heels to sign over the last month.

"I wasn't too worried about it anyway, but coach Meyer told me he's a Gator," Brown said. "He's coming back."
