Odds out on Urban Meyer becoming Cleveland Browns head coach

Ohio State's inquiry revealed that Meyer had known about domestic abuse allegations against Smith since at least 2015, when police investigated the case - and when, according to Courtney Smith, she told Meyer's wife about it.

Ohio State will hold an official press conference on Meyer this afternoon.

"What he's built at Ohio State is a recruiting machine", Simmons said. During that time Ohio State went 3-0, including a 40-28 win over a then-No.

If this is Meyer's final coaching job, how his career will be remembered will be determined through the prism in which it is viewed.

After San Francisco fired Kelly and his staff, Day joined the Buckeyes as the program's quarterbacks coach and was promoted to offensive coordinator following the departure of Tim Beck.

Meyer played collegiately at Cincinnati, spent two years as an unpaid graduate assistant at Ohio State, and worked 13 seasons as a salaried assistant at Illinois State, Colorado State, and Notre Dame.

His time at Ohio State wasn't without controversy. He came to Ohio State in 2017 after coaching for 17 years in the National Football League and college level.

Meyer's retirement comes on the heels of a tumultuous year in Columbus, Ohio, in which he was suspended for the first three games of the season after an investigation revealed that he mishandled domestic assault allegations made against former wide receivers coach Zach Smith, who was sacked in late June.

He finished 82-9 at Ohio State with a 54-4 mark in Big Ten games. And because he's an OH native and popular figure in the state, it only makes sense to project Meyer having interest in the open Cleveland Browns position. Mark Richt will be 59 next season and isn't on the hot seat, but if the program stalls out in the next two years, Richt could choose to retire, opening up a spot for Meyer to swoop in.

Ohio State could have spent much of the season watching other coaches, but in each of those instances, the university would have had to imagine those coaches at OSU.

What makes you think they didn't? And none of it was bad. "I have no further comment (regarding where he goes from here)".

The unit's finest performance came when it needed it most. Now that this is his boat, he'll be the one at the wheel.

Following a legend is never ideal, nor is losing one.

"I believe I will not coach again, Meyer said". In just over two months he would pull together the first of his flawless streak of No. 1 Big Ten recruiting classes, a group that was headlined by Spence.
