Urban Meyer Will Retire From Ohio State After Rose Bowl

Ohio State University football coach Urban Meyer to announce retirement

Urban Meyer Retiring As Ohio State Football Coach

Day is Ohio State's offensive coordinator, who served as interim coach earlier this season when Meyer was suspended for the first three games of the season after an investigation into his handling of abuse allegations against a former assistant.

Urban Meyer is stepping down as Ohio State's football coach after the Rose Bowl, according to multiple reports Tuesday morning.

Just one year later, claiming improved health and better control of his personal affairs, Meyer reemerged at Ohio State when Jim Tressel was sacked by the Buckeyes. Meyer had been dealing with painful headaches due to a cyst on his brain.

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.

Along with an 82-9 in seven seasons with Ohio State, Meyer also won the 2014 national championship.

"I dreamt of it", Meyer said Sunday.

But the move also draws another line of division with Saudi Arabia, the only country with which Qatar shares a land border. Qatar was the first nation outside of its founding members to join the cartel, entering its ranks in 1961.

He's 54, still relatively young, and though the arachnoid cyst on his brain seemed to be exhibiting painful symptoms this season, the condition isn't something life threatening-and, more crucially, those symptoms will likely subside with some minimal medical intervention. I wish him nothing but the best and everlasting success. After spending some time at Florida, Meyer resigned, citing he wanted more time with his family and had recently suffered a health scare. OSU has won outright or shared seven division titles, three Big Ten championships and one national championship.

But that doesn't mean there aren't questions facing both Ohio State and Meyer, no matter how neatly disseminated the news might have been. I think his ego took such a hit and his arrogance is so enormous that he made the decision to leave right after the suspension.

Brown was coach at Texas for 16 years and there were times he expected to face Meyer's Florida teams in national championship games. "And so, I think with that in mind, he will be very, very sensitive to what he does and want to try to help Ohio State, Ryan Day and Gene Smith in any capacity that he can".

Likewise, Gators fans adored the Head Ball Coach; they stomached Urban Meyer. Yes, the Buckeyes exploited the Wolverines' elite defense in The Game, but that doesn't take away from the strides MI has made.

Urban Meyer, one of the greatest college football coaches in the history of the sport, announced his "retirement" on Tuesday.

Meyer says the timing of his retirement was based on recruiting. Asked if he would definitely return to Ohio State next year, he answered, "Yes".
