Urban Meyer, head coach of the Ohio State Buckeyes, announced his retirement Dec. 4 at a press conference at Fawcett Center. Meyer is a former college football player, a three-time national champion and a future College Football Hall of Famer.

In most cases, when a legendary coach announces his retirement, it is followed by fan’s tears and instant congratulations on accomplishments, but Meyer’s retirement was only followed up by questions like, “Is he really going to retire?”

This is because in the past, when Meyer has announced any sort of leave or retirement, he just ends up at another job. Meyer announced in 2011 he was retiring from the head coach position at University of Florida because of health reasons and wanting to spend more time with family. Within weeks he was working for ESPN as a college football commentator. A few months after that, he announced that he would be the head coach for Ohio State.

At this point, even Meyer seems unconfident in his decision. When asked by a reporter if this is “truly it for your [Meyer’s] football career?” Meyer responded, “It’s a complicated question.”

While Meyer is settling into retirement, Ryan Day will be taking over the Ohio State head coach position effective Jan 2, 2019. Day is the current offensive coordinator and quarterback coach for the Ohio State Buckeyes, and looks forward to being their new head coach.
