Meyer will stay on through the Rose Bowl.

Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer plans on retiring after this season, Yahoo Sports' Pete Thamel reported Tuesday, citing sources. Meyer allegedly was made aware of the domestic abuse but chose not to follow up on it. The Buckeyes are 12-1 after winning the Big Ten and, and Meyer said he felt good that assistant coach Ryan Day will take over as the 25th coach of the storied program where Meyer won a national title in 2014 after two at Florida (2006, 2008).

In his 17 seasons as a head coach, Meyer compiled a 186-32 record.

Reports of Meyer's retirement were denied by Gene Smith on Friday, a day before the Buckeyes beat Northwestern for the Big Ten championship. While he said the headaches he has been dealing with started to hit "real hard" last season and again this year. he is young by coaching standards at age 54. Prior to becoming a head coach, Meyer served as an assistant at Notre Dame (1996-2000), Colorado State (1990-95), Illinois State (1988-89) and Ohio State (1986-87), where he learned under mentor Earl Bruce.

Believe it or not, you can bet on whether Meyer will be the next Browns coach. The investigation showed he tolerated bad behavior for years from Smith, including domestic-violence accusations, drug addiction, lies and other acts that directly clash with the values Meyer touts publicly.

You could feel Meyer's time was coming to an end.

Meyer's career at Florida ended abruptly as he first chose to retire following the 2009 season only to change his mind and announce he would remain with the Gators. That record includes a 65-15 run with the Gators and an 82-9 mark with Ohio State entering the Rose Bowl against Washington. His "retirement" announcement is really just the culmination of a months-long temper tantrum. The Smiths divorced in 2016.

"I would honestly throw him in the quarterback guru category", one person who has worked with Day at Ohio State said. It suspended both men over their lack of action.

He first retired from Florida in 2009 only to change his mind before the Sugar Bowl and made a decision to remain with the program on a lighter off-field schedule after a short leave of absence.

As The Tampa Bay Times reported earlier this year, "Smith was arrested in 2009 for allegedly jamming his pregnant wife into a wall". He had been hospitalized after a high-profile loss to Alabama. He also says he is not sure he is able to coach at the intense, demanding level he has used for more than 30 years. He certainly has a great offensive mind, but he's not Meyer, who outside of Nick Saban, is the best coach in college football.
