First Look at Washington-Ohio State in Rose Bowl

Ohio State University football coach Urban Meyer to announce retirement

Meyer was suspended for the first three games of this season, and I truly believe that's why he stepped down on Tuesday.

"No disrespect to the other bowl games, because they're awesome, but the Rose is the one we've always looked forward to", Meyer said.

Ohio State says Urban Meyer will retire after the Rose Bowl and assistant Ryan Day will be the next head coach.

The announcement of Urban Meyer's retirement on Tuesday was shocking only in the moment Ohio State chose to drop the news, not in the substance of the news itself, which has been at least a possibility for months. In 2014, Meyer had brain surgery to address a congenital arachnoid cyst, but he still deals with occasional painful headaches.

Meyer went 82-9 in his seven seasons as Ohio State coach, including a 54-4 Big Ten record.

When asked if his stint as head coach of the Buckeyes will be the last of his career, Meyer said the question was "complicated". After spending some time at Florida, Meyer resigned, citing he wanted more time with his family and had recently suffered a health scare. When Meyer started at Bowling Green, the team had only won two games the previous season.




Ohio State finished the 2018 season at No. 6. In 2014, Meyer helped his team take the title; he became one of only three college coaches to win major championships at two universities.

"When somebody tells me something to my face, I expect it to be the truth", Youngblood told me then.

Kelly is now the head coach at UCLA. You would need to wager $1,200 to win $100 if Meyer doesn't become the coach. Yes, the Buckeyes exploited the Wolverines' elite defense in The Game, but that doesn't take away from the strides MI has made.

With a 186-32 record over 17 seasons, Meyer steps down with one of the best winning percentages in the history of college football. But Meyer spun them around and gave them eight wins during his first season and another nine wins the following season.

A report issued by an investigative committee left a lasting stain, detailing behavior by Meyer that could have taken down a coach of lesser stature. Losing top pass rusher Nick Bosa early in the season was a blow, but in past years, Ohio State has been able to move on from injuries without missing a beat.
