Photo: Ohio State praises Urban Meyer as best active coach

Urban Meyer is one of the best head coaches in the nation, but the Ohio State Buckeyes went so far as to claim he is the best active coach. They also used him as a recruiting tactic, encouraging players to play for the best head coach in the nation.

Check out the photograph that they posted to their Instagram account about Meyer.

Playing for the best head coaches in the nation is always a draw for prospects looking to choose their schools. Meyer gives the Buckeyes a legitimate chance to win recruiting battles with each and every prospect. He is one of the top recruiters in the nation to say the least.

Ohio State is still undefeated this season and are ranked as the No. 3 team in the country.

That being said, they still have a long way to go before being viewed as a championship favorite again. They were the champions last season, but they have had many problems and flaws have been shown in their offense especially.

Meyer is the right guy to fix those issues, however, and the Buckeyes are going to be tough to beat.

Who do you think is the best active head coach in the nation at the college football level?
