Report: Urban Meyer likely out after 2019, Ryan Day lined up as successor© Joe Maiorana-USA TODAY Sports Urban Meyer recently made headlines when he said he plans on coaching at Ohio State next year. However, his time as the head coach could soon be coming to an end.

Scott Roussel of Football Scoop reports Meyer “continues to contemplate his future on an ongoing basis.” He is expected to make an announcement about his future at Ohio State following the team’s Big Ten Championship Game, and he has reportedly told Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith “that he doesn’t expect to continue to coach past the 2019 season.”

Furthermore, offensive coordinator Ryan Day is reportedly going to be taken off the market with a significant raise and “with the (most likely) unwritten understanding that he is in line to become head coach once Urban steps down.”

The Buckeyes did thrive while Meyer was out on suspension to open the season, going undefeated while the coordinator was acting as the interim head coach.

They are coming off an incredibly stirring upset victory over Michigan to close out the season and will face Northwestern on Saturday for a chance to not only win the B1G title, but potentially also a spot in the College Football Playoff.

Mike Leach recruiting Urban Meyer to teach class with him at Washington State.
Urban Meyer said he is unsure what the future will hold for him now that he only has one game left to coach at Ohio State, but Mike Leach already has an idea for the three-time national champion. Last week, Leach sent a tweet asking Washington State students if they would have any interest in a six-week class entitled “Leadership Lessons in Insurgent Warfare & Football Strategy.” Leach said he is considering teaching the course along with Washington State Sen.
