  • Urban Meyer Calls It Quits From Coaching

Urban Meyer is retiring as Ohio State's coach after the Rose Bowl, and offensive coordinator Ryan Day will take over as head coach beginning January 2, the school announced.

Tuesday's press conference is set for 2 p.m. Meyer will be joined by Day and athletic director Gene Smith.

Meyer missed the Buckeyes first three games against Oregon State, Rutgers and TCU as offensive coordinator Ryan Day took over the day-to-day coaching duties.

(The biggest difference between Meyer at Ohio State and Meyer at Florida is Ohio State's biggest rival, Michigan, was never able to beat him, whereas in the SEC Saban vanquished Meyer).

Meyer won two national championships with the Florida Gators before taking the head coaching spot in Columbus ahead of the 2012 season.

We will update this story as more information becomes available.

His final game with the Buckeyes will come at the Rose Bowl, a game he has never coached before. 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. 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. "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". He coached wide receivers in 1987.

Trump reaffirms commitment to hold summit with Kim Jong
Last month, US State Secretary Mike Pompeo's planned meeting with a senior North Korean official was canceled at the last minute. Most North Koreans choose to flee across China, which shares a 100-kilometer land border with North Korea.

In 2018, the Zach Smith stuff happens, Meyer is suspended 4 games, returns to OSU.

Believe it or not, you can bet on whether Meyer will be the next Browns coach. The team would go on to win all three games before Meyer's return on September 22 against Tulane.

Meyer's time in Florida over six years included two national championships.

A big reason for his hire at Ohio State is his penchant for running a high-tempo offense, which he's been running for the Buckeyes alongside co-offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson.

Former Ohio State players are paying tribute to retiring coach Urban Meyer. It appeared to be a dream job for the Toledo native and success quickly followed. When Meyer brought his spread offense from Utah to Gainesville, Florida, it proved to the rest of college football that exotic offenses can be successful when they are combined with the smash mouth style of the SEC. In April, the university extended it to 2022, upped his salary to $7.6 million with a built-in annual raise of 6%, AP notes.

He started his head-coaching career at Bowling Green in 2001 and moved on to Utah two seasons later before taking the Florida job in 2005 and rocketing to the top of the college football coaching ranks, a peer of Alabama coach Nick Saban, victor of six national championships.
