Urban Meyer to step down as Ohio State head coach

Ohio State University football coach Urban Meyer to announce retirement

Urban Meyer Retiring As Ohio State Football Coach

He was also suspended the first three games of the season after the school conducted an investigation into the behavior of one of his assistant coaches.

Day had a sterling reputation as a college assistant at Temple, Boston College, New Hampshire and Florida and in the National Football League as quarterbacks coach for the 49ers and Eagles when Chip Kelly was their head coach before coming to OSU in 2017. He is expected to give his reasons in a press conference this afternoon. "And health number one". His coaching wisdom and his elite ability to motivate and prepare a team is something everyone on this staff not only appreciates, but learns from and carries forward.

After seven years and a national championship at Ohio State, the 54-year-old Meyer will formally announce his departure Tuesday at a news conference.

He has shown obvious effects of pain on the sideline this season.

By stepping down now, Meyer ensures the greatest continuity for Ohio State.

Blowing a 10-point lead to a backup quarterback with less than two minutes in a game can be devastating and deflating to a team. He had to leave the game for a short time on Sunday due to a shoulder injury, but on Monday Barkley said his shoulder is fine.

Smith said Meyer will be staying with the university in a new capacity, working coaches and athletes, but he was not specific about the role. He also says he is not sure he is able to coach at the intense, demanding level he has used for more than 30 years. "I have never treated a player as No. 36. I want to congratulate Ryan Day and his family".

Meyer, whose resume finishes second only to that of Nick Saban among active college football coaches, announced he will retire after the Rose Bowl. He was caught lying and deleting text messages by a university committee investigating why Meyer harbored a domestic abuser such as Smith on his staff for years.

"I plan on coaching", he said on October 29. The two men met and Smith told Meyer "he would pull the plug on this thing" if Meyer wanted to continue as coach, but Meyer said that he wished to resign. If you believe that, I have a some oceanfront property I'll sell you in Topeka. He served a three-game suspension to begin this season, which has been tumultuous on several different fronts.

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

The program Day inherits has won 85 of the 94 games it has played in Meyer's seven seasons.

In addition to the domestic abuse scandal, Meyer "has been slowed by headaches caused by a cyst", member station WOSU reports, adding, "The chatter increased after he looked more distressed and beleaguered than usual on the sideline during the 49-20 loss to unranked Purdue on October 20".

Shortly before the end of October, Meyer addressed speculation that he would step down at the end of the season, saying he felt fine.

When discussing the expectations at Ohio State, Day said the top one is to "win the rivalry game", followed by winning "every game after that".

A former defensive back at Cincinnati, Meyer's swift rise to coaching prominence prior to Florida was evident in his two years at Utah. Critics noted that his success with the Gators was marred by a series of legal issues for his players, with more than two dozen arrests. He quickly changed his mind, returned for another season and then stepped down.
