Ohio State to Retain Key Staff Members Despite Urban Meyer's Departure


Ohio State suspended Meyer without pay for the first three games of 2018 after he and athletic director Gene Smith "failed to take sufficient management action" on spousal abuse allegations involving ex-assistant coach Zach Smith.

The Buckeyes will have the opportunity to continue recruiting Cavazos, and new head coach Ryan Day will be on the road Wednesday touching base with a number of top prospects.

Offensive coordinator Ryan Day, the same coach who took over over for Meyer during his three-game suspension to open the season, will become the full-time coach.

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.

Croatian playmaker Luka Modric was declared the victor for the 2018 Ballon d'Or award on Monday, December 3, in Paris . It didn't happen, this is a great feeling to win at least this, and very happy for it".

The university didn't say why he was retiring, but Meyer has said he suffers from debilitating headaches caused by an arachnoid cyst in his brain.

Meyer led the Buckeyes to an undefeated record in his first season at the helm in 2012, one in which the program was barred from a bowl game due to NCAA sanctions. He has a 54-4 record in Big Ten games and has won three national championships - one at Ohio State and two with the Florida Gators. (Television images from Buckeyes games this season often showed Meyer doubled over, seemingly in pain.) Both Thamel and Lesmerises say Meyer's health was a factor in his decision to step down. Turns out, he wanted to spend more time with his ESPN family.

Brown said he loves and admires Meyer, and will miss him in coaching.

Day clearly has huge shoes to fill, following Meyer's incredible job at the helm of the Buckeyes. He went 22-2 in two years with the Utes, then in the Mountain West, going undefeated in 2004 with a Fiesta Bowl victory over Pittsburgh.

Torreira reveals Unai Emery's half-time talk that inspired Spurs win
Emery praised the atmosphere at Emirates Stadium during the game, suggesting it inspired Arsenal's victory. We're disappointed when we lose any game.

"I support Urban in his desire to step aside as head coach". But Meyer spun them around and gave them eight wins during his first season and another nine wins the following season. Yes, the Buckeyes exploited the Wolverines' elite defense in The Game, but that doesn't take away from the strides MI has made.

"I've learned so much from you on a daily basis and will forever be in debt to you", Day said to Meyer during the press conference. His 186 wins are the most through 17 seasons in major college football history and his winning percentage (.853) is the highest.

A report issued by an investigative committee left a lasting stain, detailing behavior by Meyer that could have taken down a coach of lesser stature.
