Along with the controversy and tension over the Smith case, Meyer showed signs of physical distress this season, at one point even falling to a knee during a game due to what he said was a severe headache caused by an arachnoid cyst.
Urban Meyer has an.853 career winning percentage and a national title at Ohio State. "Are the games getting to you?" the reporter asked.
It will be interesting to see if Day alters Meyer's philosophy. "But there will be a time".
Ryan Day is viewed as an up-and-coming superstar in the coaching business and Ohio State didn't want to let him achieve his stardom somewhere else. He's a second-year Ohio State assistant who had never before been a head coach.
This is one of the most accomplished head coaches of all time and to lure him out of retirement, it's going to have to be an elite job.
Ryan Day, who coached the Buckeyes during Meyer's absence and was promoted this year to offensive coordinator, will take the team's reins upon Meyer's departure.

Among the goals in that streak was a victor seven minutes into injury time at Bournemouth in the third game of the last season. Topical tripe? You've come to the right place. "I thought the goals were scrappy from our perspective and avoidable".
Day served as Ohio State's acting head coach for the first three games this season after the school suspended Meyer for mishandling the employment of former assistant coach Zach Smith.
He played quarterback at the University of New Hampshire from 1997 to 2001 for Chip Kelly, who was the offensive coordinator at the time.
What is his salary at Ohio State?
The university confirmed the news, announcing a 2 p.m. press conference for Tuesday. After a months-long investigation from 2015-16, no charges were filed. Plus, the more I think about it, I'm just not sure Meyer makes sense in the NFL.
The report also indicated that Meyer used medication that affected his memory. Citing concerns for his health and a desire to be with his family, Meyer resigned but eventually changed his mind and coached one more seasons with the Gators before stepping away in 2011. He has experience at every level of football-from FCS to the NFL-and has worked for Meyer for nearly three seasons (one as a graduate assistant at Florida).
At Ohio State, however, that's kind of hard because OSU has had a College Football Hall of Fame head coach at the helm for 67 of the last 68 years. Two years later he won his third national title by leading the Buckeyes in the first-ever College Football Playoffs. Health was a factor then, too, but not the same issues that affected him this season.
