Ohio State's Urban Meyer to retire

Why Ryan Day was Ohio State’s choice to succeed Urban Meyer and the challenges that await

After Meyer steps down, offensive coordinator Ryan Day will be the Buckeyes new head coach. Meyer led the program to a New Year's Six/BCS bowl in every year in which the Buckeyes were eligible during his tenure in Columbus, Ohio.

Urban Meyer was not only the Big Ten's most prolific coach on the field during his seven seasons at Ohio State, but he was also its best recruiting head coach.

By stepping down now, Meyer ensures the greatest continuity for Ohio State. The cyst has caused consistent headaches for Meyer, increasing concern for his health, says the reports.

U.S. special counsel Mueller recommends no jail time for Michael Flynn
Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office is recommending no jail time for former U.S. national security adviser Michael Flynn . Trump has described Mueller's probe as a political witch hunt and Russian Federation denies interfering in the election.

Meyer was 81-9 with a national championship at Ohio State after six years at Florida, where he won two national titles.

"At the end of the day, I'm very convinced that you're going to be judged on how you are as a husband and as a father and not on how many bowl games we won", Meyer said at a campus news conference. Turns out, he wanted to spend more time with his ESPN family. A long resume of turning teams around, championships at two schools, and a highly praised coaching career at Ohio State made him one of the highest-paid football coaches. Those three games pushed Haskins into serious Heisman consideration, and they also might be an impetus for him to go pro, though the Buckeyes' elevation of Day, with whom Haskins is comfortable, will provide a level of continuity that might convince the quarterback to give college one more season.

A former defensive back at Cincinnati, Meyer's swift rise to coaching prominence prior to Florida was evident in his two years at Utah. He also rushed for three touchdowns against Maryland, salvaging one of the Buckeyes' worst defensive performances this season and highlighting exactly how much Ohio State needed him this year.

'SNL' pays tribute to Bush 41 with montage of Dana Carvey's impressions
Bush as more-bipartisan than his presidential successors - and his softer-spoken, humbler style is a far cry from Trump. "Mr. The Clintons and the Obamas both became friendly with the Bush family and attended Barbara Bush's funeral in April.

Ohio State finished the 2018 season at No. 6. His coaching wisdom and his elite ability to motivate and prepare a team is something everyone on this staff not only appreciates, but learns from and carries forward. He said he is ready for the task of keeping the Buckeyes as an elite program.

The 54-year-old owns a 186-32 overall record in 17 seasons. He took a hiatus from coaching, but he wasn't done. He was caught lying and deleting text messages by a university committee investigating why Meyer harbored a domestic abuser such as Smith on his staff for years.

Being a 2020 propect, Ohio State has roughly 13 months to re-convince Cavazos that Ohio State is where he wants to be.
