Urban Meyer Will Retire From Ohio State After Rose Bowl

You can now bet on whether Urban Meyer becomes the next Browns head coach

But on the day Urban Meyer supposedly retired, the first thought that crossed everybody's mind was, "Yeah, right".

He says his headaches have become a persistent problem. Because Day coached with former Meyer assistant Steve Addazio at Boston College, he already had familiarity with Meyer's offensive scheme and terminology, which helped him hit the ground running in Columbus last season.

Meyer acknowledged the investigation was among the reasons for stepping down, and he was asked if the suspension will affect his legacy. And it was surely becoming more of a problem when the parents of 18-year-old recruits began asking the kind of hard questions that Meyer had no desire to answer. If you believe that, I have a some oceanfront property I'll sell you in Topeka.

"I've learned so much from you on a daily basis and will forever be in debt to you", Day said to Meyer during the press conference.

Cavazos had been committed since June 27, but with Meyer's retirement, his recruitment has now been reopened.

The timing of the announcement was based on recruiting, he said; it needed to be announced before the early signing period opens December 19.

Meyer, 54, who has spent the last seven seasons with the Ohio State program, including winning a national championship in 2014, was calling to tell him that he was stepping down.

"We have enjoyed an incredible run".

Trump, Xi chew over trade war at high-stakes dinner
Earlier in the day, Trump canceled a planned news conference, saying the timing was not right because of the death of former U.S. But it was also a bet on a deal being reached .

"I am truly honored to be here today and am so appreciative to President Drake and Gene Smith for the faith they have in me to lead this team", Day said.

There is Nick Saban and Urban Meyer, and then a Grand Canyon-sized chasm until the next- best recruiting head coach in the Rivals.com era. Sports indicated Meyer's final game will be the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day.

Meyer had brain surgery to drain the cyst in the spring of 2014, and another surgery is an option for treatment.

Additionally, the football program announced that Ryan Day, who served as acting head coach for the first three games of the 2018 season while Meyer was suspended, will be named as OSU's next head football coach.

Meyer led the Gators to national championships in 2006 and 2008 and went 13-1 three times at UF (also in 2009).

Ohio State might also have to replace Dwayne Haskins next season, which would have made a win at the Big House even less likely.

Meyer got into the football coaching scene after interning at a high school shortly after college. Following his success at Bowling Green, Meyer took a new job coaching at Utah, where he drove the team to a 10-2 record in his first season. Not only was it the Big Ten's best class that year, it also ranked fourth nationally.
