Former Sooners coach Bob Stoops abruptly announced his retirement in June, and the university handed the program over to his young, up-and-coming offensive coordinator.
With the Class of 2019 early signing period two weeks away, Meyer's announcement and Day's immediate promotion were calculated.
Coach Ryan Day now serves as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, according to the school's website. He went 3-0 in those games. 15 TCU at AT&T Stadium. If Florida State is mired in mediocrity for the next two years, they could pull the plug and chase Meyer to see if he'd be interested in returning to the Sunshine State.
"My son is committed to Ohio State University and Coach Day", said Terrance Mathis, Dwan's father. The Buckeyes outscored opponents 270-158 in the second half this season. Likely just fine. Same as Matt Campbell or most anybody else mentioned as a possibility.
At Ohio State: Spence saw spot action in his freshman year at Ohio State, but took over as a full-time starter as a sophomore and finished the year with 50 tackles and eight sacks. He would be able to recruit the best athletes from one of the more talent-rich states and bring FSU back to competing with Clemson for ACC supremacy and playoff berths.

"I refused to go to the MI game".
Meyer also said that he could not adapt to a "CEO" type style with a more hands-off approach if he wanted to coach differently to extend his career.
Day coached the quarterbacks at both National Football League stops. Now it seems he might have been it in an unofficial capacity, being named Meyer's succesor. For a couple of years Meyer was able to fight off Saban, but then Saban beat him in the 2009 SEC title game, the game when Tim Tebow cried, and Meyer's program began its decline. Day has young talent coming back, including sack leader Chase Young and possibly Haskins, the latter of whom can opt for the National Football League draft.
As of now United Kingdom has four commitments for 2019 out of OH - safety Moses Douglass and defensvie tackle Isaiah Gibson from Springfield; wide receiver JaVonte Richardson from Maple Heights and defensive tackle Cavon Butler from Toledo.
Now, he has no choice.
After seven years and a national championship at Ohio State, the 54-year-old Meyer will formally announce his departure today at a news conference.
