Urban Meyer Called This Major Coach At 6 A.M. This Morning

Urban Meyer retires from Ohio State but at age 54 is the former Ute coach really finished with college football

Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith on Tuesday said he knew Day would be his next coach "a couple of weeks ago ... for the last month, Urban and I every Sunday, we began to talk about potential transition". But how much will Meyer be worth when he retires? Meyer took a leave of absence after the 2009 season while at Florida after a health scare.

A former defensive back at Cincinnati, Meyer's swift rise to coaching prominence prior to Florida was evident in his two years at Utah.

That win signified everything about Meyer's seven-year run.

Buckeyes assistant Ryan Day -who was the interim coach during Meyer's three-game suspension at the start of the season - will take over the program. He sat out one season before taking over the Buckeyes, where he won a national championship in his third season. After spending some time at Florida, Meyer resigned, citing he wanted more time with his family and had recently suffered a health scare. The Buckeyes need to figure out how to stay engaged for lesser opponents and how to limit big plays-and that may take a change on the coaching staff. Urban Meyer is an Ohio State guy.

Recruitment: Ohio State's battle for Young came down to the local school, Maryland, and another national power in Alabama. 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. But on the day Urban Meyer supposedly retired, the first thought that crossed everybody's mind was, "Yeah, right". He also was reproached for what some saw as overly lax treatment of Zach Smith, the assistant coach who was accused by his ex-wife of domestic abuse. Meyer ultimately was suspended for the Buckeyes' summer program and the first three games of the 2018 season.

Moments later, Meyer was asked if this is truly the end of his football career to which he replied, "That's a complicated question". Today, he's worth an estimated $20 million. Asked if he would definitely return to Ohio State next year, he answered, "Yes". He reportedly resides in OH with his wife in a massive 12,000-square-foot mansion. And then there is the arachnoid cyst that puts pressure on the coach's brain and sometimes causes the kind of headaches that dropped him to one knee on the sidelines during the IN game earlier this season. It's suspected that this is a major reason for his retirement. This time seems infinitely more permanent. He has not yet said of any plans for after retirement.
