Urban Meyer Calls It Quits From Coaching

During a game against IN earlier this year, Meyer dropped to one knee on the sidelines due to the level of discomfort.

Meyer's last game with the Buckeyes will be their Rose Bowl showdown with Washington on January 1. CFT had caught wind of speculation that it wouldn't be surprising at all if Meyer were not the Buckeyes' head coach next season, whispers that grew a little louder given the embarrassing loss in West Lafayette this and what some have described as Meyer's "anguished... emotional... erratic" sideline demeanor. The cyst has caused consistent headaches for Meyer, increasing concern for his health, says the reports. Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith will hold a press conference at 2 p.m.to announce Ryan Day as the next coach.

He was also battered this year by an offseason issue involving a now-fired assistant coach that led to Meyer's suspension for the first three games of the season.

Ohio State announced the stunning news this morning. Ohio State will officially name Day as the permanent replacement on Tuesday.

"I plan on coaching", he said on October 29.

That embarrassed him a lot; we discussed it when he visited me while I was convalescing. In April, he wrote on Twitter: "Buhari is dead and he never came back from London".

His time at Ohio State wasn't without controversy.

Ohio State will play Washington in the Rose Bowl on January 1 after winning the Big Ten championship over Northwestern on Saturday.

Meyer, 54, has won three national titles - two at Florida and one at Ohio State. Meyer has about $38 million left on his contract.

He started his head-coaching career at Bowling Green in 2001 and moved on to Utah two seasons later before taking the Florida job in 2005 and rocketing to the top of the college football coaching ranks, a peer of Alabama coach Nick Saban in terms of respect and ability.
