Ohio State coach Urban Meyer retires, led Florida to two national championships

You can now bet on whether Urban Meyer becomes the next Browns head coach

Meyer, who also has a cyst on his brain, has suffered from severe headaches in the past, and had brain surgery in 2014.

After seven years and a national championship at Ohio State, the 54-year-old Meyer will formally announce his departure today at a news conference.

"He told me that he couldn't be animated at the level he needed to, to energize his team and stay healthy", Brown said.

When asked if his stint as head coach of the Buckeyes will be the last of his career, Meyer said the question was "complicated". The fact that we have an elite coach on our staff. "I am grateful for the two seasons I've had as a part of his staff".

In almost seven full seasons as the head coach of the Buckeyes, Meyer has gone 82-9, winning 10 or more games in each of his first six seasons; the Buckeyes are 9-1 with Meyer as the head coach in 2018 and can get a 10th win by beating Washington in the Granddaddy of Them All next month.

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. His record is one for the ages - 186-32, never a losing season in 17 seasons and only one five-loss campaign.

Day, like Riley at OU, had completed two seasons as quarterback coach, though Day was not in charge of the Buckeye offense (Kevin Wilson is).

Meyer, who led the Buckeyes to their third Big Ten title game on Saturday, is believed to be stepping down due to health reasons.

Rutgers coach Chris Ash was defensive coordinator for UrbanMeyer for two seasons at Ohio State, including the 2014 national championship team. A news conference with Meyerand school officials was scheduled for Tuesday afternoon. But as ESPN reported in 2015, the coach also left "myriad off-field issues", including more than 30 arrests of players during Meyer's six-year tenure. OSU has won outright or shared seven division titles, three Big Ten championships and one national championship.

Urban Meyer, one of the greatest college football coaches in the history of the sport, announced his "retirement" on Tuesday. It was later revealed that Meyer was suffering from chest pains as a result of esophageal spasms.

Ohio State finished the 2018 season at No. 6. Meyer has seen plenty of success as a football coach, which has earned him millions of dollars through the years. He then left the Notre Dame sidelines for his first head coaching job at Bowling Green. He had an undefeated, 12-0 season during his first year. But both the coach and his university were criticized earlier this year for their response to domestic abuse allegations against longtime assistant Zach Smith by his ex-wife, Courtney Smith.
