Adjust Comment Print

Meyer is expected to formally announced at a press conference Tuesday afternoon that he's retiring as the head coach of the Buckeyes, following this year's Rose Bowl game against Washington.

Of course, we won't be surprised if Meyer tells the world he wants to spend more time with his family.

Michael Thomas, a receiver who plays for the New Orleans Saints, tweeted that he sheds a tear when thinking about the impact Meyer had on his life and others.

Urban Meyer, the highly successful football coach who won three national championships and sparked controversy and criticism this season for his handling of domestic violence allegations against a now-fired assistant, will retire after the Rose Bowl, the Ohio State University announced Tuesday. Meyer has been slowed by headaches caused by a cyst.

The news of Urban Meyer's retirement at Ohio State shouldn't come as a shock to anybody. His successor will be the current Ohio State offensive coordinator Ryan Day. He also won two national titles as head coach of the Florida Gators from 2005 to 2010.

But his time away from the game of football didn't last long when he was contacted about the opening at Ohio State.

Eastern Europe: number of HIV diagnoses reached a peak
In the eastern part, the situation has begun to stabilise, and numbers of AIDS cases between 2012 and 2017 declined by 7%. The momentum to revamp political commitment to end AIDS by 2030 has never been so strong in the European Region.

Meyer owns an 85-9 record in seven seasons with the Buckeyes. However, his time on the sidelines is ending on January 1, 2019, after he coaches the Buckeyes in the Rose Bowl.

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.

Believe it or not, you can bet on whether Meyer will be the next Browns coach. His tally includes 11 bowl wins, the inaugural 2015 College Football Playoff among them. But Meyer knew he couldn't go on the way things were this season. But just like at Florida cracks began to emerge at Ohio State.

Whether this is the final time we see Meyer on the sideline remains to be seen but, health withstanding, it's hard to imagine this is his final act.

The Buckeyes went 3-0 with Day on the sideline, beating No. 15-ranked TCU on the road to finish Day's temporary stint as head coach.

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.
