Honestly did not see this coming, to tell you the truth. Can't help but wonder if Purdue broke him...i guess there's more to his health than originally thought.

He'll probably wind up being an advisor on the Alabama staff a la Butch Jones.

No, he's done. If he is leaving Ohio State then he's done.

He's staying in Columbus, where his 2 daughters and one grandchild live. His son is playing baseball at the University of Cincinnati just 2 hours away. Time for him to relax and enjoy life.

A few weeks ago I was listening to the sports commentators during a game, his health needs to be a priority. He had surgery on his brain due to a cyst but sounded like he needed to take it easy.
I liked Urban Meyer and thought he was a great coach for the Buckeyes.

Reports that I've heard from Columbus is that this brain cyst, which apparently is inoperable, has limited Meyer's physical abilities to even coach; one person said that sometimes he couldn't even shout during practices. Meyer said that his coaching days are over, but many commentators don't believe him.

Here's a transcript of the press conference.

https://www.cleveland.com/osu/2018/1...they-said.html

Nobody would want a debilitating arachnoid brain cyst. However, perhaps there is a surgical solution, as discussed in the later paragraphs of the following article. If Meyer does find a surgical solution, it's possible that in a few years he might return to the coaching game, especially if Ryan Day falters opening up the Ohio State head coaching job once again.

I'm cynical.. So, I can't help but believe that this is part of a deal worked out over the domestic situation with his coach earlier in the year. He is suspended 3 games and resigns at the end of the year and they don't fire him and don't have to pay whatever is left on his contract..

So, I also expect to see him take another job after a year off.

as I said.. I know I'm cynical. So you don't have to point it out. But.. That's what I suspect here.

Firstly, Urban Meyer is a great coach. He has always been able to adapt to the talent he has, and runs a great system.
He is a terrific recruiter, and has been a winner everywhere he has been.
Recruiting is a very strenuous process and is very tiring. Coach Meyer has made mistakes on the kids he has recruited....his teams at Florida always had a significant number of his players get into trouble. Having lived in Florida at the time he was at UF, I know he had a lot of explaining to do after those arrests, and that certainly took a physical and emotional toll on him.

Combined with his poor judgment on the recent domestic violence incident at OSU, the total effect of all these controversies combined with his health problems is probably too much for him to continue coaching.

He did a pretty good job as a studio host with espn, and maybe a return to tv would be a good option for him. He has a beautiful family, and I would caution him about getting back into coaching unless he gets total clearance from his physicians.

Cool it coach, and either relax for a few year or go into tv....don't risk a deterioration of your health.

This has all the makings of him going to USC next year after Clay Helton inevitably flops again in 2019.

Remember he did the same. exact. thing in Florida pretty much (cited the heart attack or heart problem or chest problem, sat out and did TV for a couple years) and than when the Ohio State job opened up due to tattoo gate, voila! All of a sudden his "health" problems seemed to have vanished! Maybe this time it's different and he's retiring for good, but if you do something once odds are you'll do it again. And he's not even that old either, I think only 55 or so. If he was older in his 60's I could see "yah he's done for real, he's going to enjoy time with his grand kids, see them grow up, relax, spend time with the wife & family, go on vacations that aren't recruiting trips" but at 55 he's still got a good 5-10 years at least left in him.
