After seven years and a national championship at Ohio State, the 54-year-old Meyer will formally announce his departure Tuesday at a news conference.

Now that Urban Meyer has announced he is retiring as Ohio State head coach after the team's appearance in the Rose Bowl in January, the inevitable next step is to project what happens next with the highly successful coach.

Urban Meyer drove Penn State coach James Franklin to tears (twice) and to his "great but not elite" speech while coaching at Ohio State. He then revealed later in the season that he has been dealing with an arachnoid cyst in his brain for 20 years, causing severe headaches and necessitating brain surgery in 2014. Day had somewhat of an audition as temporary head coach to begin the season, when Meyer was suspended three games for mishandling the employment of former wide receivers coach Zach Smith. Meyer said his decision had to come before the early signing period opens December 19. His career winning percentage is the best in program history, and while at Florida, he became the first coach in FBS history with consecutive 13-win seasons. He's the only Buckeye coach to never lose against That Team Up North. Meyer beat Jim Harbaugh's teams four times and Brady Hoke's teams three times in his tenure at Ohio State. He has nine conference titles in 14 seasons and has gone 10-3 in bowl competition.

Meyer was a standout coach at Utah before he left for Florida in 2005 and rocketed to the top of the college football coaching ranks.

Meyer's time in Florida over six years included two national championships. He led the Buckeyes to a national championship two years later. Day coached the team in Meyer's absence. But that immediately drew skepticism, along with questions about how long Meyer had known about the accusations - and whether he had reported them, as required by Title IX. "I didn't feel I was doing right by our players and by (athletic director) Gene (Smith)", Meyer said. But Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller produced three scores, and linebacker Ryan Shazier returned an interception for a touchdown.




Here's what a top five list of winningest active coaches now looks like without Meyer and Snyder on it.

Ohio State had a stretch of five straight wins this season, including a rout of archrival MI that gave the Buckeyes another division title and a win over Northwestern for the Big Ten championship. It appeared to be a dream job for the Toledo native and success quickly followed. He said he planned on coming back to coach in 2019.

Ohio State finished the 2018 season at No. 6.

Meyer's salary is $7.6 million in 2018 and he has about $38 million left on his contract.
