An Urban Meyer rival is so happy for him

Ohio State Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer with his wife Shelley Meyer after defeating the Northwestern Wildcats in the Big Ten conference championship game at Lucas Oil Stadium.

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.

The former National Football League wide receiver, who was coached by Meyer at Ohio State, opened up about the head coach's situation on FOX Sports 1 today.

Meyer has a 82-9 record during his time in Columbus, went 7-0 against MI and also finishes with a 54-4 record in Big Ten play.

Brown, who was hired to coach the Tar Heels last week after spending five years off the field, said Meyer's decision has put things into perspective for him.

When pressed, Meyer gave a more concrete answer.

Meyer earned his first head coaching job in 2001 at Bowling Green State University near Toledo.

In 2018, the Zach Smith stuff happens, Meyer is suspended 4 games, returns to OSU.

"He will not be back in coaching" Herbstreit said on SportsCenter this morning. You would need to wager $1,200 to win $100 if Meyer doesn't become the coach.

"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. Because Day coached with former Meyer assistant Steve Addazio at Boston College, he already had familiarity with Meyer's offensive scheme and terminology, which helped him hit the ground running in Columbus last season.

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 ideal post-retirement home.

Rutgers coach Chris Ash was defensive coordinator for UrbanMeyer for two seasons at Ohio State, including the 2014 national championship team.

Wilson said during Day's interim stint that he fully believes in Day's ability to lead Ohio State, and that he will be able to continue the success the Buckeyes have seen under Meyer.

Recruitment: Ohio State's battle for Young came down to the local school, Maryland, and another national power in Alabama. After stepping down at Florida due to stress-related health concerns, he took the Ohio State job before the 2012 season after Jim Tressel was forced out for lying to the NCAA amid a memorabilia-for-tattoos scandal. He will be walking away with $38 million left on his contract.

He started his head-coaching career at Bowling Green in 2001 and moved on to Utah two seasons later before taking the Florida job in 2005 and rocketing to the top of the college football coaching ranks, a peer of Alabama coach Nick Saban, victor of six national championships.
