According to FootballScoop, Ohio State Buckeyes head coach Urban Meyer plans to address his coaching future following Saturday night’s Big Ten Championship. The Buckeyes face the Northwestern Wildcats in the game.
Meyer is expected to announce that he will not coach past the 2019 season. When he was asked on Friday about FootballScoop’s report on Friday, he said “No comment.”
This season has been a tough one for Meyer, especially on the field. He is reportedly dealing with a cyst in his head that leads to “aggressive headaches.”
He also was suspended for his handling of the Zach Smith situation. Following firing Smith, who was then his team’s wide receivers coach, Brett McMurphy brought damming information to the table from Courtney Smith, his ex-wife.
This lead to Meyer being suspended, as an internal investigation was done. Meyer’s wife Shelley reportedly was in communication with Smith during the incidents with her ex-husband.
Yet, Meyer said that he never knew of alleged text messages. There was also reports that he cleared his phone, but doesn’t know how he did it.
Meyer missed the first three games of the season due to his suspension. Offensive coordinator Ryan Day served as the interim head coach.
The Buckeyes have retained Day. He is expected to be named the team’s head coach when Meyer steps down in 2019.
The 54-year-old Toledo, Ohio native has been the Buckeyes head coach since the 2012 season. He is 81-9 as the Buckeyes head coach.
He also guided the team to the first-ever College Football Playoff National Championship game following the 2014 season.
As a head coach, Meyer is 185-32. He went 65-15 as the Florida Gators head coach. He also was 22-2 as the Utah Utes head coach. And he went 17-6 as the Bowling Green Falcons head coach.
He was the Gators head coach from 2005 through 2010. He was the Utes head coach in 2003 and 2004. Meyer also was the Falcons head coach in 2001 and 2002.
Prior to being named Bowling Green head coach, he was the Notre Dame Fighting Irish’s wide receiver coach from 1996 through 2000. He also was the Colorado State Rams wide receivers coach from 1990 through 1995.
Meyer was the Illinois State Redbirds quarterbacks coach and wide receivers coach in 1989. He also was the Redbirds outside linebackers coach in 1988.
He was a graduate assistant with the Buckeyes in 1986 and 1987. He began his coaching career with the St. Xavier High School Bombers as their defensive backs coach in 1985.
