An ESPN spokesman said Urban Meyer will not appear on the network this weekend after the former Florida coach requested he be taken off his assignment.

Several media outlets have reported that Meyer is set to become the new coach at Ohio State. The announcement may come next week.

On Friday, ESPN spokesman Mike Humes posted on his Twitter account: “Urban Meyer won’t be appearing on ESPN this weekend. He requested off his studio assignment and we obliged.”

Meyer has been working as a game analyst this season for ESPN.

The rest of his usual broadcast team will be covering the Buckeyes’ game against Michigan in Ann Arbor today.
