Urban Meyer out as Ohio St. coach after Rose Bowl

Urban Meyer out as Ohio St. coach after Rose Bowl”

One of the most successful eras in college football history is coming to an end.

"A myriad of factors contributed to Meyer's decision", Thamel wrote, "but sources say foremost among them was his happiness with the state of the Ohio State program he inherited seven years ago".

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer will retire after the Rose Bowl, the university announced. Sports indicated Meyer's final game will be the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day. He will be replaced by offensive coordinator Ryan Day. He is expected to give his reasons in a press conference this afternoon.

Meyer, who is 54, previously stepped away to deal with his health at Florida, only to return.

Meyer has piled up wins at Ohio State after a similar run over six years at Florida that included two national championships. Meyer came under fire for his response - or lack thereof - in regards to allegations of domestic abuse against one of his assistant coaches. Meyer was suspended for the first three games of the season after an investigation revealed that he mishandled domestic assault allegations made against former wide receivers coach Zach Smith, who was sacked in late June. And, of course, Meyer beat hated rival MI all seven times he faced them, including the last three with Jim Harbaugh as head coach.

Meyer owns a career record of 186-32 and has coached the Buckeyes to an 82-9 record in seven seasons at the school.
