COLUMBUS (WCMH / AP) – A release from Ohio State University says football coach Urban Meyer will retire after Rose Bowl.
OSU sent the message in a release on Tuesday morning.
Meyer will use a press conference Tuesday at 14:00 to formally announce his retirement coaching after Ohio State’s appearance in the Rose Bowl Game and Athletic Director Gene Smith will name the offensive coordinator and quarterback coach Ryan Day as 25th head coach in the history of the program, starting January 2.
On Friday before the Big 1
0 Championship game, Meyer refused to comment on his future with Buckeyes after a report was released as he planned to go down as a coach.
Meyer has treated long-term health problems that caused him some hard headache this season. Headache is related to an arachnoid cyst in his brain that he has dealt with for years.
Meyer will attend the press conference of Smith and Day.
Day received a big pay rise for its time as the football team’s executive boss coach at the beginning of the season.
Day received a one-time payment of $ 487,000 in his September 30 paycheck.
Day is served in the expanded role from August 1, 2018 to September 16, 2018.
The payment is a supplement to his $ 1 million salary per year, agreed upon in the signing of a new contract in February.
