Urban Meyer will retire from Ohio Sate after bowl game

Ohio State University football coach Urban Meyer is stepping down after the Rose Bowl.

Meyer is expected to formally announced at a press conference Tuesday afternoon that he's retiring as the head coach of the Buckeyes, following this year's Rose Bowl game against Washington.

At 54, Meyer is relatively young for a football coach, but health issues reportedly played a role in his decision.

Day, in his second year as an offensive coordinator at OSU, led the team through preseason camp and those first three games before Meyer returned full time to the sideline. And then there is the arachnoid cyst that puts pressure on the coach's brain and sometimes causes the kind of headaches that dropped him to one knee on the sidelines during the IN game earlier this season. This also isn't the first time Meyer has stepped away from coaching.

"At the end of the day, I'm very convinced that you're going to be judged on how you are as a husband and as a father and not on how many bowl games we won", Meyer said at a campus news conference. Asked if he would definitely return to Ohio State next year, he answered, "Yes". Meyer's seventh season with Ohio State has been a controversial one that started with a three-game suspension for his handling of assistant Zach Smith's domestic violence arrest.
