Former Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer was spotted in Redskins owner Daniel Snyder’s suite at the Redskins-Eagles game on Sunday.
Many have speculated that he could be a candidate for the Redskins head coaching vacancy and attending Sunday’s game was another sign that Washington might have interest.
Redskins rookie receiver Terry McLaurin, who played for Meyer at Ohio State, said that wasn’t the reason why Meyer attended the game.
“He’s not a candidate. Coach Meyer was here to support me, and Dwayne,” McLaurin said. “He was in town. He called me last night and he wanted to come support me at the game. He was my guest. It was good to see him again, good to talk to him. … It has nothing to do with his coaching status at all. It was good to just have him support me again.”
McLaurin had five catches for 130 yards, including a 75-yard touchdown.
Haskins wasn’t aware that Meyer was at the game:
“He was here? That’s cool, man. Those spirits were there for sure.”
Meyer was in the owners box with Redskins quarterback Alex Smith, whom he coached at Utah in 2003 and 2004. Smith is still recovering from a gruesome leg injury.

Meyer has also been linked to the Cowboys if they were to move on from Jason Garrett.
