Ohio State coach Urban Meyer to retire after Rose Bowl

BREAKING: Urban Meyer to step down at Ohio State

If Meyer's career is actually done, he'll walk away with a 186-32 career record, 10-3 bowl record (pending the Rose Bowl) and three national titles amid stints at Bowling Green, Utah, Florida and Ohio State.

When he left Florida, Meyer cited health concerns as the main reason. His successor will be the current Ohio State offensive coordinator Ryan Day.

Meyer won two national championships with the Florida Gators before taking the head coaching spot in Columbus ahead of the 2012 season. He looked in pain and even took a knee during one game earlier this season. Other than serving as interim head coach when Meyer was suspended at the start of the season, Day has no head coaching experience. Meyer was given a three-game suspension for his role in the controversy.

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". Ohio State averaged 43.5 points per game in 2018 and is second in total offense, led by Heisman Trophy finalist quarterback Dwayne Haskins.

As of now United Kingdom has four commitments for 2019 out of OH - safety Moses Douglass and defensvie tackle Isaiah Gibson from Springfield; wide receiver JaVonte Richardson from Maple Heights and defensive tackle Cavon Butler from Toledo.

What is his salary at Ohio State?

But perhaps most important to Ohio State fans, Meyer is a flawless 7-0 against rival MI.

Shortly before Halloween, Meyer addressed speculation that he could step down at the end of the season, saying he felt fine and definitely would be back next year.

"I've seen him coach in spring practice and he's one of the more chill coaches", Wilson said. According to Rivals, Ohio State had the nation's No. 2 recruiting class in 2018, while UK's ranked 30th.

The NFL QB posted the following tweet during the Big Ten Championship Game win over Northwestern.

But the loss to Purdue weighed heavily and Ohio State finished No. 6 in the playoff rankings.

Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer will step down after the Rose Bowl.

Amid the scrutiny on Meyer's program, it also emerged that Zach Smith's treatment of his wife had drawn police scrutiny almost 10 years ago - shortly after Meyer first took him on as a graduate assistant at the University of Florida. It appeared to be a dream job for the Toledo native and success quickly followed.
