Urban Meyer To Retire Following Rose Bowl

Urban Meyer Calls It Quits From Coaching

Urban Meyer Calls It Quits From Coaching

Ohio State's Urban Meyer announced his retirement on Tuesday - but don't expect the recruiting landscape of the Big Ten to shift dramatically. He's one of the highest-paid college football coaches because he's enjoyed nothing but success at Ohio State. "I am grateful to Buckeye Nation, the students, faculty, our administration and, most importantly, our student-athletes for their support and respect for this program during this time". Citing concerns for his health and a desire to be with his family, Meyer resigned but eventually changed his mind and coached one more seasons with the Gators before stepping away in 2011. An arachnoidal cyst in his head, first diagnosed in 1998, has caused severe headaches at times this season, including it appeared during some games in which he looked to be in pain on the sideline.

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.

The school, which was already embroiled in separate scandals involving alleged sex abuse by a now-deceased athletics doctor and a diving coach, put Meyer on leave August 1.

"I'm fully aware I'm ultimately responsible for this situation", Meyer said in August.

So, how does that affect Penn State and the rest of the Big Ten?

Former Boston College quarterback Tyler Murphy, who was with Day for a year after transferring from Florida, remembers Day as a more laid-back coach as well, someone who doesn't yell unless he's not seeing effort from his players or is forced to repeat himself multiple times. His coaching wisdom and his elite ability to motivate and prepare a team is something everyone on this staff not only appreciates, but learns from and carries forward.

Meyer guided Ohio State to the national championship in 2014. "The NCAA rules allow me to take another official visit to meet with coach Day, so I am going to do that after the state championship game". He has nine conference titles in 14 seasons and has gone 10-3 in bowl competition.

The 54-year-old owns a 186-32 overall record in 17 seasons. Spence would be suspended for the Buckeyes' bowl game that year, however, after failing a drug test.

"I plan on coaching", was Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer's response to retirement rumors on October 29. The Buckeyes returned to the CFP in 2016, losing in the Fiesta Bowl semifinal to Clemson. He led the Buckeyes to a national championship two years later. As the 2017 victor of the most prestigious award in college football, Murray's former teammate, Baker Mayfield, is now a lifetime Heisman voter. For a couple of years Meyer was able to fight off Saban, but then Saban beat him in the 2009 SEC title game, the game when Tim Tebow cried, and Meyer's program began its decline. Meyer has been one of the best recruiters in college football over the last 20 years.
