Ailing Meyer to retire after OSU's Rose Bowl game

Ohio State was scheduled to live-stream a news conference at 2 p.m. officially announcing Meyer's retirement and the introduction of coach Ryan Day.

"Urban's done a great job every place he's been", Barry Alvarez, the Wisconsin athletic director and previously the Badgers' football coach, told The Post on Tuesday at Yankee Stadium, where he participated in a news conference for the upcoming New Era Pinstripe Bowl.

Meyer's retirement comes on the heels of a tumultuous year in Columbus, Ohio, in which he 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. Day had somewhat of an audition as temporary head coach to begin the season, when Meyer was suspended three games for mishandling the employment of former wide receivers coach Zach Smith.

Meyer is 82-9 at in seven seasons at Ohio State, with a 7-0 record against MI and three Big Ten titles.

Meyer guided Ohio State to the national championship in 2014 after doing so at Florida in 2006 and 2008.

We will update this story as more information becomes available. He said he planned on coming back to coach in 2019.

Meyer's 2018 campaign started out tumultuously when he was suspended for the first three games of the season without pay after an investigation into his handling of domestic abuse allegations against a former assistant coach.

Later in the press conference, Cleveland.com's Doug Lesmerises asked Meyer if he's certain he will not coach again.

That's probably why Ohio State went out and found the only man with a higher winning percentage at OSU than Meyer.

Operating under the belief that Meyer will return to coaching in the next two years, these are some of the colleges that could potentially be fits for Meyer to get back in the game. I also want to say "thank you" to coach Meyer.

Meyer owns an 85-9 record in seven seasons with the Buckeyes.

There is plenty of caution - like hiring a guy who has just three games of head coaching experience - but Day's future is as bright as any assistant coach in the nation, so Ohio State just chose to keep him home and turn his future into theirs. Meyer's health situation was apparently a serious one.

Meyer's time in Florida over six years included two national championships. I'm a graduate of Ohio State.

Ohio State finished the 2018 season at No. 6.

Day had the advantage of being at Ohio State already, but that also shouldn't disqualify him from the job.

While Meyer served his suspension, Day led the Buckeyes to victories in the first three games of this season.

Meyer's contract is one of the best in college football.
