Ohio State Coach Urban Meyer Has Decided To Retire

Urban Meyer retiring Ryan Day stepping up as Gene Smith banks on Lincoln Riley plan at Ohio State

The Buckeyes have not yet officially announced the news.

But health concerns caused Meyer to step away from the game in 2010, before returning to lead Ohio State in 2012 to a his second flawless 12-0 season.

Ryan Day, who now is Ohio State's offensive coordinator, will take over as the Buckeyes' head coach on January 2.

Meyer is coming off back-to-back Big Ten championships and is heading into a January 1 Rose Bowl matchup against Washington. Meyer's dealt with a mess of his making in addition to health problems.

CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta said "this is probably the revelation of the day". Putin is clearly a slow learner".

The 54-year-old Meyer won the 2014 national championship with the Buckeyes and had led Florida to two BCS titles before coming to Columbus. Asked if he would definitely return to Ohio State next year, he answered, "Yes". Meyer ultimately was suspended for the Buckeyes' summer program and the first three games of the 2018 season.

An Ohio native who played his college football at Cincinnati, Meyer's first coaching job at the collegiate level came as a graduate assistant on Earle Bruce's OSU staff in 1986-87. And, of course, Meyer beat hated rival MI all seven times he faced them, including the last three with Jim Harbaugh as head coach.

Ohio State's 2018 football season will end the way it began: With Urban Meyer not the Buckeyes coach.
