Top recruits of Urban Meyer era at Ohio State

Top recruits of Urban Meyer era at Ohio State

One of the most successful eras in college football history is coming to an end.

- Ohio State University football coach Urban Meyer is announcing his retirement Tuesday, the school said on Twitter. Meyer's last game with the Buckeyes will be their Rose Bowl showdown with Washington on January 1.

Recruitment: Meyer was hired as the head football coach at Ohio State on November 28, 2011.

Ryan Day, the offensive coordinator who led the Buckeyes while Meyer was suspended for three games at the start of the season, will take over as Ohio State's new full-time head coach. He admitted during the year that a previously-revealed congenital arachnoid cyst on his brain was causing him problems once again - he previously had surgery on it in 2014 - but said that he was managing the pain and planned to coach next year. Defensive line coach Larry Johnson was Young's primary contact in Columbus, but Meyer was involved heavily with that recruitment every step of the way.

Vice President Mike Pence said there was a kindness about Bush that "was evident to everyone who ever met him". Following the service in Washington, Bush will be flown to Houston Wednesday to lie in repose at St.


The university announced the move Tuesday. He left Florida the following year after the 2010 campaign and took a year away from coaching to spend time with his family.

"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.

Ohio State had not made Spence's top seven, released the summer prior to his senior season, but Meyer made Spence a priority immediately after being hired and secured the five-star's commitment just three weeks into the job. Perhaps just as important as all of that, Meyer never lost to MI.

Meyer's comfort with the future of the Ohio State program and confidence in Day as his successor played into his decision, according to Yahoo Sports' Pete Thamel. Meyer came under fire for his response - or lack thereof - in regards to allegations of domestic abuse against one of his assistant coaches. Day coached the team in Meyer's absence.
