9. Red Flags
Questions remain over Meyer’s temperament and if he has the mentality to be an NFL coach. This may seem ludicrous because of his consistent college successes, but those wins came with a cost. Meyer has an obsessive personality and suffered from mental health struggles over the years (via Deseret News). He has retired three times already and this rings alarm bells.
While his first retirement lasted for a single day, the other two were related to stress and scandal. Meyer isn’t going to find it any easier in professional football because he has millions of eyes watching him. Moreover, he has never coached an NFL quarterback before so it may not even be the right move. Let’s hope that he can physically stand the pressure.
