Ohio State to Retain Key Staff Members Despite Urban Meyer's Departure

Ohio State has released the term sheet for soon-to-be-new head coach Ryan Day, who will be taking over for Urban Meyer following the Buckeyes' appearance in the Rose Bowl on January 1.

Ohio State had just hung 62 points on MI and Urban Meyer remained flawless against his program's most bitter rival, so you wouldn't expect the reality of his situation to hit him as he was swimming through fans on the Ohio Stadium turf.

"I've learned so much from you on a daily basis and will forever be in debt to you", Day said to Meyer during the press conference.

It's not the first time that Meyer's health has had an impact on his coaching career. He previously coached at Bowling Green and Utah. He looked in pain and even took a knee during one game earlier this season.

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

Meyer led the Buckeyes to an undefeated record in his first season at the helm in 2012, one in which the program was barred from a bowl game due to NCAA sanctions. He took a hiatus from coaching, but he wasn't done. For all he has done in the Big Ten and many moons ago in the Pac-12, the 54-year-old coach has never brought a team to the Rose Bowl.

Samsung shared the video with caption "Enjoy stunning cinematic experience on the Galaxy Note9's SuperAMOLED, infinity display". The sole selfie camera here is expected to be coupled with a triple rear-camera setup as more sensors are now becoming the norm.


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.

Day clearly has huge shoes to fill, following Meyer's incredible job at the helm of the Buckeyes. 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 leaves with the fourth-most wins in program history despite coaching the program for just seven seasons.

In April, Ohio State announced Meyer had signed a two-year contract extension that would keep him at the helm through 2022. Today, he's worth an estimated $20 million.

This marks the third time Meyer has left his job since 2009. He reportedly resides in OH with his wife in a massive 12,000-square-foot mansion.

The news comes as no surprise, as retirement was one of the options available to Meyer as he battled the cyst, which caused him to drop to a knee on the sideline during the IN game. The cyst has caused consistent headaches for Meyer, increasing concern for his health, says the reports. It's suspected that this is a major reason for his retirement. "I am grateful to Buckeye Nation, the students, faculty, our administration and, most importantly, our student-athletes for their support and respect for this program during this time".
