Urban Meyer has interesting response when asked if he will coach again

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.

Translating that coachspeak, that means Meyer will take some time away from coaching, Ohio State is in great hands with Ryan Day taking over as the head coach, and in a year or two, if his health is improved, he'd return to coaching.

In 2011, Meyer was named the next head coach of Ohio State University.

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

Brown was coach at Texas for 16 years and there were times he expected to face Meyer's Florida teams in national championship games.

Coach Ryan Day now serves as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, according to the school's website.

Meyer has a 82-9 record during his time in Columbus, went 7-0 against MI and also finishes with a 54-4 record in Big Ten play.

Early on Monday, Bush's casket was flown from Houston to Washington , D.C., where his body will lie in state until Wednesday. Bush died at his Houston home on Friday night at the age of 94, seven months after the death of his wife, Barbara.

Meyer, who had a "core values" banner in the locker room demanding his players treat women with respect, apologized to Ohio State fans following word that he would be suspended.

Meyer is No. 28 overall among FBS coaches in total wins.

The university announced the move Tuesday. In 2018, he was placed on leave due to an investigation into one of the assistant coach's domestic abuse allegations. During his suspension, the team was run by Day, the co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

He added that conversations about how long he could coach at Ohio State began in 2014 and got more serious a year ago as his condition continued.

The Buckeyes went into Sunday hoping to land the final playoff spot, but the combination of their win against Northwestern and the results from the Big 12 and SEC title games kept them steady at No. 6, behind both Oklahoma and Georgia. After stepping down at Florida because of stress-related health concerns, he took the Ohio State job before the 2012 season after Jim Tressel was forced out for lying to the NCAA amid a memorabilia-for-tattoos scandal.

Day's contract is set to pay him $4.5 million per year for five years.

He started his head-coaching career at Bowling Green in 2001 and moved on to Utah two seasons later before taking the Florida job in 2005 and rocketing to the top of the college football coaching ranks, a peer of Alabama coach Nick Saban, victor of six national championships.
