Urban Meyer stepping down at Ohio State

Urban Meyer stepping down at Ohio State

A big reason for his hire at Ohio State is his penchant for running a high-tempo offense, which he's been running for the Buckeyes alongside co-offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson.

Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer will retire after the Rose Bowl, forced to end his coaching career by a cyst in his brain that has grown in recent years, caused him regular headaches and made him fear for his long-term health, Cleveland.com is reporting. In seven short years, Meyer's legacy can stand with any before him, and tower over most. A shocking blowout loss at unranked Purdue on October 20 pushed Ohio State to the fringe of the national championship chase and prompted all sorts of questions about Meyer's future.

The university confirmed the news, announcing a 2 p.m. press conference for Tuesday.

Meyer went 82-9, won the first-ever College Football Playoff in 2014 as well as three Big Ten titles. "I refused to go to the MI game". Day has singed a five-year contract worth $4.5 million per year.

The school, which was already embroiled in separate scandals involving alleged sex abuse by a now-deceased athletics doctor and a diving coach, put Meyer on leave August 1.

Translating that coachspeak, that means Meyer will take some time away from coaching, Ohio State is in great hands with Ryan Day taking over as the head coach, and in a year or two, if his health is improved, he'd return to coaching. Meyer's last game with the Buckeyes will be their Rose Bowl showdown with Washington on January 1.

Is it a gamble?

Urban Meyer is retiring.

At that time, Meyer said he and his staff had not previously known about the allegation. His time with the Gators was not without controversy, however, as the program saw a boom in player arrests and off-field incidents under his watch. This wasn't a surprise to OSU. As the 2017 victor of the most prestigious award in college football, Murray's former teammate, Baker Mayfield, is now a lifetime Heisman voter.

Day had the advantage of being at Ohio State already, but that also shouldn't disqualify him from the job. With Day, they got to see their imagination brought to life every day.

Things are about to get much more serious, however, as imagination turns to reality. I like coach Day, so that is good that they are not going outside to hire a new coach.
