MORE MEYER: Farrell on the decision | The best recruits from Meyer was | Recruitment reaction | Five teams to benefit from the departure of Meyer | Coaching carousel | BuckeyeGrove.com
Ohio State Coach Urban Meyer He decided to resign from his post after Buckeyes played Washington in the Rose Bowl after a seven-season series during which he accumulated an incredible record of 82-9 and boasted some of the best recruitment classes nationwide.
According to reports, there were numerous factors for his decision to leave the state of Ohio, including the fact that he was happy with where the program is located, his confidence in the offensive coordinator Ryan Day taking over Buckeyes and health problems, including a brain cyst that causes severe headaches.
Numerous times this season, Meyer has been seen doubled up on the sidelines to deal with apparent headaches, and at least once had to be assisted by medical professionals from the state of Ohio.
Meyer has missed the first three games this season because he served a suspension for handling the charges against the former assistant coach Zach Smith, which included alleged domestic abuse.
At 54, Meyer established himself as one of the best college football coaches of all time. He won two national titles in Florida before leaving the Gators with health problems. Meyer also won a title in Columbus. His record is one for the ages – 186-32, never a losing season in 17 seasons and only a campaign of five losses.
With Meyer's future ahead of him, we ask Rivals.com for the National Recruitment Director Mike Farrell if you see Meyer return to training at some point – if the work of the USC opens after the next season, or if the position of Notre Dame opens at some point or if you look for his hand in the NFL. Or did Meyer finish coaching forever?
"This is a difficult question to answer, because Meyer is still a young man with many years of potential left as head coach, but I have to think that this is his last stop, because it is the second time he is discharged due to problems It would be hard to explain to return to take control of the USC, or even Notre Dame, after closing twice.
"Of course, those teams would like to have it if they need (USC before Notre Dame) and welcome it with open arms, and it will probably be very successful, but it seems to have done to me".
