On Tuesday, three days after the Buckeyes beat Northwestern to earn a second consecutive Big Ten championship, Meyer announced he was stepping down after the Rose Bowl on January 1 and likely would never coach again.
It's been a troubling year for Meyer who was suspended without pay for the first three games of this season for his mishandling of the domestic assault allegations against former wide receivers coach Zach Smith.
"I've learned so much from you on a daily basis and will forever be in debt to you", Day said to Meyer during the press conference. He heads into the game with an 82-9 record during his Ohio State tenure, including a flawless record over archrival MI. Meyer said his decision had to come before the December 19 signing day.
Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith on Tuesday said he knew Day would be his next coach "a couple of weeks ago ... for the last month, Urban and I every Sunday, we began to talk about potential transition".
Ex-NFL Player Brandon Browner Sentenced to 8 Years in Prison
Browner had a previous relationship with the victim and had been arrested for domestic violence against her earlier this year. After one season in New England, Browner played one season with the New Orleans Saints in 2015.
"We have enjoyed an incredible run. I can lie to you and say it is not important to me", he said.
LeBron came out and said he's good friends with Meyer and is more concerned about his health than the veteran coaching staying on the sidelines trying to bring home another National Championship to Columbus.
Former Ohio State players are paying tribute to retiring coach Urban Meyer.
The program Day inherits has won 85 of the 94 games it has played in Meyer's seven seasons. Meyer wasn't going to win in the court of public opinion like he won on the football field, no matter how aggrieved he felt. Afterward, he served as an assistant coach for more than a decade before finally landing a head coaching position at Bowling Green.
Qualcomm announces Snapdragon 855 processor with 5G and performance improvements
Nevertheless, Qualcomm has stated that the 3D Sonic Sensor will appear on new devices within the first half of 2019. But the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 doesn't just bring the usual speed and efficiency improvements.
Here's a look at Meyer's career vs. Penn State.
Ohio State might also have to replace Dwayne Haskins next season, which would have made a win at the Big House even less likely. "I followed my heart and not my head". Those 17 prospects made up the smallest class Meyer signed in all of his 15 years between Utah, Florida and Ohio State.
But the loss to Purdue weighed heavily and Ohio State finished No. 6 in the playoff rankings.
It has been previously reported that OSU was discussing making the 39-year-old Day, who drew near-universal praise for his handling of the Buckeyes during Meyer's suspension, a de facto head coach-in-waiting; Smith subsequently addressed the situation without really addressing it. He has never lost more than two games in any one season with the Buckeyes. Meyer has about $38 million left on his contract.

My answer to these questions is based on the fact that I covered two of the greatest college football coaches in history - Meyer and Steve Spurrier - when they were at the University of Florida.
