Urban Meyer To Retire As Ohio State Coach

Meyer said a lot of things contributed to his decision to retire, including the Zach Smith situation, but he mostly focused on his headaches.

Michael Thomas, a receiver who plays for the New Orleans Saints, tweeted that he sheds a tear when thinking about the impact Meyer had on his life and others.

He has a 54-4 record in Big Ten games and has won three national championships - one at Ohio State and two with the Florida Gators.

"A detailed report issued by an investigative committee left a lasting stain, detailing behavior by Meyer that could easily have taken down a coach of lesser stature", AP reports.

So the big question here isn't whether Urban Meyer, who is still only 54 years old, will stay retired, it's where he ends up next.

A 2 p.m. news conference has been scheduled.

Ryan Day, who coached the Buckeyes during Meyer's absence and was promoted this year to offensive coordinator, will take the team's reins upon Meyer's departure.

This season, Ohio State is 12-1 and won the Big Ten conference title, but it did not make it into the final four of the College Football Playoff which will decide the national champion. Several Ohio State staff members told ESPN after the game that they noticed a positive change in Meyer the past two weeks.

Day, 39, has never been a head coach.

"I'm honored to have represented my home state and this great university the past seven seasons", Meyer said.

Meyer's retirement comes on the heels of a tumultuous year in Columbus, Ohio, in which he was suspended for the first three games of the season after an investigation revealed that he mishandled domestic assault allegations made against former wide receivers coach Zach Smith, who was sacked in late June.

"My son is committed to Ohio State University and Coach Day", said Terrance Mathis, Dwan's father.

His time at Ohio State wasn't without controversy.

His salary for coaching football at OSU is $7.6 million for the 2018 season. Meyer has been the Buckeye's head coach for the past seven seasons. That's especially the case because Meyer wasn't very good at TV. Will he be looking for a path back to the National Football League as a defensive coordinator, with Meyer gone? "He shouldn't be coaching, and I would argue that he shouldn't have been coaching the last month". This also isn't the first time Meyer has stepped away from coaching.
