  • BREAKING: Urban Meyer to step down at Ohio State

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.

Meyer repeatedly said he planned on coaching in 2019, but uncertainty remained, even after Meyer seemed to improve in recent weeks and Ohio State won the Big Ten championship in beating Northwestern on Saturday.

Meyer's comfort with the future of the Ohio State program and confidence in Day as his successor played into his decision, according to Yahoo Sports' Pete Thamel.

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. We have the best fans in the land, and I didn't want to let them down. "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".

"Most people didn't see Lincoln Riley coming out of that", Smith said, referencing the sudden coaching change that was made at Oklahoma in the summer of 2017.

It started with him being placed on administrative leave back in July after reports surfaced that he was aware of spousal abuse allegations involving Zach Smith, an assistant coach on his staff, a claim he vehemently denied but eventually led to a three-game suspension by the university.

Meyer would eventually admit publicly to having chronic debilitating headaches caused by an arachnoid cyst that he had surgery on back in 2014. His last was by far his most controversy-filled.

Crosby pushed his kick wide right, with the flags atop Lambeau Field blowing in toward the field at the time of the kick. The Packers converted just three of 14 third down attempts. "I'm going to do whatever they tell me to do", Kumerow said.

The former National Football League wide receiver, who was coached by Meyer at Ohio State, opened up about the head coach's situation on FOX Sports 1 today. 2 Nittany Lions before securing a 39-38 comeback win. His last game will be in the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day. "I hired Ryan Day because I thought he was very good coach".

It was Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer. The move removes Day from consideration for offensive coordinator positions in the National Football League, the level at which he previously worked.

Meyer cited health issues after that SEC title game loss to Saban, but eventually chose to stay for another year, his worst in major college coaching as the Gators went 8-5 overall, 4-4 in the SEC.

"I'm honored to have represented my home state and this great university the past seven seasons", Meyer said. His biggest problem is he wants to coach, but physically he can't coach.

How will Ryan Day do at Ohio State?

Meyer has been Ohio State's head coach since 2012, amassing an 82-9 record - and never losing to the school's arch-rival, Michigan. The Buckeyes are 12-1 after winning the Big Ten.
