Urban Meyer to retire after the Rose Bowl

And, in the end, maybe there's one thing we can take Meyer's word on - and that's his health. His coaching wisdom and his elite ability to motivate and prepare a team is something everyone on this staff not only appreciates, but learns from and carries forward. The fact that our program is very healthy.

Since taking over Ohio State, Meyer has gone 82-9 (54-4) with a national championship in 2014, an undefeated season in 2012 and three more conference titles.

He had shown obvious effects of being in pain on the sideline this season, leading to questions about his future.

Meyer apologized to Ohio State fans following the news that he would be suspended.

Smith said Meyer will be staying with the university in a new capacity, working coaches and athletes, but he was not specific about the role.

I don't care about all those accolades and I certainly don't want to see him stick around to win more, however, I would have loved to see Harbaugh beat him before he left. So does Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith.

Meyer said leaving would have been more hard if the program wasn't healthy.

It's no secret, I am not big fan of Urban Meyer. He'd succeeded at Bowling Green, won 20 of 22 games at Utah and then won two national championships at Florida before walking away after the 2010 season.

"My goal has always been to make this one of the premier and comprehensive programs", Meyer said. He was caught lying and deleting text messages by a university committee investigating why Meyer harbored a domestic abuser such as Smith on his staff for years. Day will take over for Meyer in exactly four weeks.

Meyer was asked if the suspension will affect his legacy. I think his ego took such a hit and his arrogance is so vast that he made the decision to leave right after the suspension. "I can lie to you and say it is not important to me", he said. "We came close a few times". Meyer said his decision had to come before the December 19 signing day. It will help in recruiting and it could even help on the field as early as next season.

Here's a look at Meyer's career vs. Penn State.

A startling blowout loss at unranked Purdue on October 20 pushed Ohio State to the fringe of the national championship chase and prompted questions about Meyer's future.

This question has dogged Ohio State fans for much of the season-and the talented redshirt sophomore bolting for the National Football League has looked increasingly likely over the course of the past month. Within months, he had accepted his "dream" job at Ohio State. He certainly has a great offensive mind, but he's not Meyer, who outside of Nick Saban, is the best coach in college football.

Those are pretty long odds against the Browns hiring Meyer, who does have some scandal factor and health issues involved in his departure from Ohio State.
