Ex-Players pay tribute to OSU coach Urban Meyer

Urban Meyer Calls It Quits From Coaching

"I recognize the toll that it takes", Smith said.

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.

Rutgers coach Chris Ash was defensive coordinator for UrbanMeyer for two seasons at Ohio State, including the 2014 national championship team. He led the Buckeyes to a national championship two years later. The exact reasons will be debated, even after he speaks at a news conference this afternoon.

No further details about the decision to retire were immediately available. Though Meyer had known about accusations against Smith, which dated back years, he kept him on the staff and at one point told the press that he didn't know as much about the situation as was later revealed. I won't be sitting around staying up all night, at night with nothing to do.

Brown said he loves and admires Meyer, and will miss him in coaching. He just took over at North Carolina.

Should Ohio State have done a national search?

They fanned out on both sides of the crossing and many slipped through an opening in the border fence or tried to climb over. The suspect allegedly admitted to being from El Salvador and entering the USA without authorization.

According to the school, Meyer will coach the team through the Rose Bowl before handing over the coaching duties to Day, who takes over as the next Ohio State coach on January 2, 2019. A March 2018 analysis by ESPN found that college football or basketball coaches earned the top salary among public employees in 39 of the 50 states.

Meyer, among the elite coaches in college football and one of its highest paid, has coached at Ohio State for seven seasons.

The university announced the move Tuesday. He has a 186-32 lifetime record. Meyer, who also has a cyst on his brain, has suffered from severe headaches in the past, and had brain surgery in 2014.

A news conference was scheduled for today during which Meyer is to announce his retirement, with co-offensive coordinator Ryan Day appointed the team's 25th head coach. 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.

Meyer had shown obvious effects of being in pain on the sideline this season. He fired assistant coach Zack Smith in the summer of 2018 when Smith's ex-wife filed a protective order after years of domestic abuse.

Ryan Day went 3-0 to start the season as the Buckeyes' head coach, and while the opponents weren't noteworthy, that doesn't mean people weren't taking note of Day's approach and performance. The university cited that lapse in suspending Meyer for three games after an investigation. "He was the most upfront coach that we had contact with, saying that if I worked hard I could earn a spot and how I needed to work for what I wanted there".
