Ohio State University football coach Urban Meyer to announce retirement

Ohio State University football coach Urban Meyer to announce retirement

Meyer has compiled an 82-9 record in seven seasons with the Buckeyes.

Ohio State will now turn to Day, a second-year Ohio State assistant who had never before been a head coach before he stepped in for Meyer this season. Meyer fought through painful headaches and was visibly struggling during games this season, occasionally rubbing his head and bending over. Meyer's last game with the Buckeyes will be their Rose Bowl showdown with Washington on January 1. He said the move needed to be made before the early signing period opens on December 19. Or is Meyer done in coaching for good? He has nine conference titles in 14 seasons and has gone 10-3 in bowl competition.

Operating under the belief that Meyer will return to coaching in the next two years, these are some of the colleges that could potentially be fits for Meyer to get back in the game.


Brown says Meyer "explained to me that he has the health issues and that's totally the reason he's stepping away, and it's time for him to do that".

The three-time national champion skipper's announcement comes a day after Buckeyes fans learned quarterback Dwayne Haskins is a finalist for the Heisman Trophy, given to college football's most outstanding player, and two days after the Buckeyes narrowly missed the four-team College Football Playoff. North Carolina State coach Urban Meyer. Day coached the team in Meyer's absence.

Both the 54-year-old Meyer's exit and Day's hiring are 180-degree opposites of the situation when Meyer was hired in 2011. With Meyer stepping down and Snyder retiring at KSU, Miami's Mark Richt moves to No. 2 among active coaches. Murphy noticed that Day was able to adjust his playcalling, rather than asking players to adjust to him, which is part of what has made him successful at Ohio State. He joined Ohio State's staff in 2017 after stops at Temple (twice), Boston College (twice), the Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers.


Amid the scrutiny on Meyer's program, it also emerged that Zach Smith's treatment of his wife had drawn police scrutiny almost 10 years ago - shortly after Meyer first took him on as a graduate assistant at the University of Florida. They loved the candid, colorful Spurrier because he was not only a great tactician but an engaging personality; they tolerated the icy, aloof Meyer simply because he won a lot of games.

It appeared to be a dream job for the Toledo native. Without Meyer on the sideline in 2019, just Saban, Clemson's Dabo Swinney and Texas A&M's Jimbo Fisher can call themselves title-winning coaches while out on the recruiting trail. Meyer has about $38 million left on his contract.
