Urban Meyer stepping down at Ohio State

Urban Meyer Calls It Quits From Coaching Urban Meyer Calls It Quits From Coaching

Meyer is coming off back-to-back Big Ten championships and is heading into a January 1 Rose Bowl matchup against Washington.

The Rose Bowl will be Urban Meyer's final game as coach of Ohio State. He will be replaced by offensive coordinator Ryan Day.

Meyer's last game with the Buckeyes will be their Rose Bowl showdown with Washington on January 1.

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

The One Where 'Friends' Leaves Netflix

In response to the backlash, Solveig issued an apology insisting that he has always had the utmost respect for women. Instead of the attention going to a world-class player for her talent it will all be about Solveig's question".


It is expected that Meyer will cite his health as the reason for his departure. And, of course, Meyer beat hated rival MI all seven times he faced them, including the last three with Jim Harbaugh as head coach.

It's been a troubling year for Meyer who was suspended without pay for the first three games of this season for his mishandling of the domestic assault allegations against former wide receivers coach Zach Smith.

But perhaps most important to Ohio State fans, Meyer is a ideal 7-0 against rival MI. He's a second-year Ohio State assistant who had never before been a head coach. The team was 3-0 under him to start the 2018 season.

Ohio State finished sixth in the race for four playoff spots despite winning the Big Ten title for the third time in five years. But health concerns caused Meyer to step away from the game in 2009, before returning to lead Ohio State in 2012, after making a promise to his family that he would take better care of himself.
