Best NFL draft picks under Urban Meyer at Ohio State

Adjust Comment Print

As for Ohio State going forward, I am shocked, SHOCKED!, that Greg Schiano, aka the greatest college football coach of all time according to the national media, didn't get the Buckeye job and is likely to be fired or forced out as defensive coordinator this offseason.

Ohio State will have a news conference at 2 p.m.

Ohio State has named him its new man. Day will replace a coach that's taken the Buckeyes to a national championship and three Big Ten titles, and will be expected to continue the program's winning tradition, go head-to-head with Jim Harbaugh and regularly compete for more championships. The cyst was diagnosed in 1998 but worsened the past few years, and Meyer dropped to his knees on the sideline during an October game against in and often looked distressed during games, rubbing his head and wincing. Day was the team's interim coach for the first three games of the season when Meyer was serving a suspension for his handling of allegations against former assistant coach Zach Smith. Meyer said that his health issues did not affect his coaching when asked about that medication in early September. The team was 3-0 under him to start the 2018 season.

Meyer also said that he could not adapt to a "CEO" type style with a more hands-off approach if he wanted to coach differently to extend his career.

Even after Meyer returned and Day stepped out of the spotlight, he continued to prove himself by coaching the Buckeyes' explosive offense, which he's been in charge of since the 2017 season.

His time at Ohio State wasn't without controversy.

"I believe I will not coach again", Meyer said.

Please, you are powerful, buy my best player". "It's more hard to make the team better and stronger with buying". I hope you can interpret it in the right way.

The obvious constant is Day, who reportedly signed a five-year contract and is now among the youngest head coaches in college football.

But perhaps most important to Ohio State fans, Meyer is a flawless 7-0 against rival MI.

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.

Hell, there were plenty of pundits who thought hiring Urban Meyer was a gamble. But the promotion of offensive coordinator Ryan Day should ensure recruits don't jump to Happy Valley or elsewhere.

At Ohio State: Spence saw spot action in his freshman year at Ohio State, but took over as a full-time starter as a sophomore and finished the year with 50 tackles and eight sacks.

Of course, we won't be surprised if Meyer tells the world he wants to spend more time with his family.
