Jason Garrett remains the Dallas Cowboys' head coach, but the organization is already flirting with potential replacements.
Slater added that Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley is still a strong candidate to take over for Garrett, who's in the final year of his contract. Clemson offensive coordinator Tony Elliott is also a possibility.
Dallas lost on Thursday night to the Chicago Bears, and the mounting pressure on Garrett is increasing after the team's third straight defeat. The 6-7 Cowboys are still on track to make the playoffs, though that's largely a result of being in the NFL's least competitive division.
A three-time national champion, Meyer stepped down from the Buckeyes at the end of last season because of health reasons.
The 54-year-old established himself as one of college football's greatest coaches over seven seasons at Ohio State, winning the 2014 College Football Playoff National Championship and posting a 77-9 overall record.
Meanwhile, Riley has been recognized as one of college football's premier offensive minds in his three seasons with the Sooners.
Elliott, 40, has acted as Clemson's co-offensive coordinator (alongside Jeff Scott) since the final game of the 2014 season. His offense has been the driving force behind Clemson's two recent national title wins (2016 and 2018).
