Urban Meyer Will Retire From Ohio State After Rose Bowl

You figured there'd be some negative reactions to the bombshell announcement Ohio State's Urban Meyer will be stepping down as head coach after this season.

Meyer had a wildly successful run in Columbus, which he looks to culminate with a Rose Bowl victory.

Just one year later, claiming improved health and better control of his personal affairs, Meyer reemerged at Ohio State when Jim Tressel was sacked by the Buckeyes.

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

This is it-until it isn't.

Meyer said a lot of things contributed to his decision to retire, including the Zach Smith situation, but he mostly focused on his headaches. Or is Meyer done in coaching for good? Meyer will start feeling better, and then he'll get bored, fast; he's not the kind of retired coach fans will get accustomed to seeing out for a grocery run or at the local auto wash.

"I believe I will not coach again", said Meyer, who will have a yet-to-be-determined role at the school.

How will Day tweak the coaching staff in the short and long term?

Likewise, Gators fans adored the Head Ball Coach; they stomached Urban Meyer.

Day coached the Buckeyes during Meyer's absence. Which brings us to the next question.

Brown was coach at Texas for 16 years and there were times he expected to face Meyer's Florida teams in national championship games.

Meyer apologized to Ohio State fans following the news that he would be suspended. It is a game Ohio State has won 14 of the last 15 times. Meyer lied to reporters at Big Ten Media Day about what he did and didn't know about the abuse of Smith's wife Courtney.

Will Dwayne Haskins go pro? He will step down after the Rose Bowl on January 1. Within months, he had accepted his "dream" job at Ohio State. That was thanks in large part to Haskins, who completed 70.2% of his passes (348 of 496) on the year, throwing for 4,580 yards, 47 touchdowns and just eight interceptions-in just his first season of appreciable playing time. A startling blowout loss at unranked Purdue on October 20 pushed Ohio State to the fringe of the national championship chase and prompted questions about Meyer's future.

The "rivalry game" is of course against MI.

Rutgers coach Chris Ash was defensive coordinator for UrbanMeyer for two seasons at Ohio State, including the 2014 national championship team. After spending some time at Florida, Meyer resigned, citing he wanted more time with his family and had recently suffered a health scare. "It is going to be an honor to represent the Big Ten conference in that game".

It's too soon to say. With Meyer's retirement, the most efficient active coach will be the guy coaching against Meyer in his final game. It's loaded with talent, in a state loaded with talent, where recruits' allegiance is to a program, not necessarily the man in charge. Day is 39 and Riley was 33 when named to succeed Stoops in June 2017. Think of everything that had to happen for Meyer to end up at Ohio State. "But I'm prepared and ready for the task".
