Urban Meyer Calls It Quits From Coaching

Retiring Ohio State Buckeyes head coach Urban Meyer isn't just one of the highest-paid coaches in college sports - he's the highest-paid public official in the state of Ohio, according to public records.

Ohio State Athletic Director Gene Smith said during a Tuesday afternoon press conference that Meyer will move into a new role at Ohio State where he will guide all coaches to maximize their results.

Meyer's retirement comes on the heels of a tumultuous year in Columbus, Ohio, in which he was suspended for the first three games of the season after an investigation revealed that he mishandled domestic assault allegations made against former wide receivers coach Zach Smith, who was sacked in late June.

Meyer will be replaced by offensive coordinator Ryan Day - who led the team when the head coach served his suspension for the first three games of the 2018 season.

Unfortunately for Wilder , he appeared to gas himself out going for the finish that he didn't get after the knockdown. I promise you.' I said, 'I am the fighting man and I'll step up and represent my country.' And tonight I did that.

"He is still committed until we meet (with the OSU staff) and find out more about the situation", said Fred Battle, father of the OSU defensive back pledge. However, his time on the sidelines is ending on January 1, 2019, after he coaches the Buckeyes in the Rose Bowl. Considering what happened the last time Meyer stepped away from coaching, there is and will continue to be questions about a return. Meyer initially said he didn't know about the abuse when he fired Smith, but it turns out he might have known about it and done nothing.

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

Ryan Day went 3-0 to start the season as the Buckeyes' head coach, and while the opponents weren't noteworthy, that doesn't mean people weren't taking note of Day's approach and performance.

"It was interesting because I've never had him as a head coach, so my first thought was, 'I wonder how this will work out?' but I definitely think he can do it", Murphy said when Day was named interim earlier this year. A March 2018 analysis by ESPN found that college football or basketball coaches earned the top salary among public employees in 39 of the 50 states. "He was directly responsible for my son coming to Ohio State".

The wording on climate change was "a little bit more than the status quo but not backtracking", one European Union official said. Fentanyl, an extremely powerful drug, is 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine and 30 to 50 times more potent than heroin.

Meyer's time in Florida over six years included two national championships. Big college football programs pay big bucks for that kind of success, and Ohio State is no exception.

Miami - For the same reasons Meyer would make a lot of sense at Florida State because of the recruiting benefits and path to the playoff, Miami could be a flawless post-retirement home.

Day had the advantage of being at Ohio State already, but that also shouldn't disqualify him from the job. He earned close to $6 million in 2017 before the school extended his contract and gave him a raise. He coached for two years at Bowling Green and two years at Utah before joining Florida in 2005.
