Ailing Meyer to retire after OSU's Rose Bowl game

Ailing Meyer to retire after OSU's Rose Bowl game

Meyer says a cyst in his head has been causing headaches, which he's so far controlled with medication. Meyer had brain surgery to drain the cyst in the spring of 2014, and another surgery is an option for treatment.

In addition to the domestic abuse scandal, Meyer "has been slowed by headaches caused by a cyst", member station WOSU reports, adding, "The chatter increased after he looked more distressed and beleaguered than usual on the sideline during the 49-20 loss to unranked Purdue on October 20". Meyer has about $38 million left on his contract.

"I've seen him coach in spring practice and he's one of the more chill coaches", Wilson said. So the issue... I don't want people anxious about me. This also isn't the first time Meyer has stepped away from coaching. 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. As he talked with Meyer about the next steps for the Ohio State football program, Smith said the team decided not to look outside for a new coach because Day was already on staff.

Meyer guided Ohio State to the national championship in 2014 after doing so at Florida in 2006 and 2008. He previously coached at Bowling Green and Utah. Sports indicated Meyer's final game will be the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day.

In his seven seasons, the Buckeyes had remarkable success, winning at least 11 games each season. The Buckeyes returned to the CFP in 2016, losing in the Fiesta Bowl semifinal to Clemson.

Meyer can sit out for another year and then when Clay Helton falls on his face guess who would be there to ride into the Pac 12 and lead USC back to title glory?

Still, there is a great deal of skepticism that Meyer's time on the sideline will be coming to an end. Two years later he won his third national title by leading the Buckeyes in the first-ever College Football Playoffs.

He first retired from Florida in 2009 only to change his mind before the Sugar Bowl and made a decision to remain with the program on a lighter off-field schedule after a short leave of absence.

Urban Meyer is retiring. It was later revealed that Meyer was suffering from chest pains as a result of esophageal spasms. I want Ohio State to be successful in the worst way.

Believe it or not, you can bet on whether Meyer will be the next Browns coach.

Ryan Day went 3-0 to start the season as the Buckeyes' head coach, and while the opponents weren't noteworthy, that doesn't mean people weren't taking note of Day's approach and performance.
