Urban Meyer to retire as Ohio State head coach after Rose Bowl

Urban Meyer to retire as Ohio State head coach after Rose Bowl Urban Meyer will retire after coaching Ohio State in the Rose Bowl on Jan. 1, the school announced. Offensive coordinator Ryan Day will replace him.

Michael Charles Leach (born March 9, 1961) is an American college football coach. He is the head coach of the Washington State Cougars football team.

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. Michael Baumgartner.

Now that Meyer will have some free time on his hands this offseason, Leach wants to invite him to take part in teaching the course as well.

It’s always tough to tell when Leach is serious. He probably has the most unique sense of humor of any coach in college athletics, and a piece of artwork hanging on his office wall showcases that perfectly. But if he really does plan to teach a class, our guess is it would fill up in a matter of seconds. Meyer probably isn’t interested as he is looking to spend more time with his family, but that’s nice of Leach to extend the offer.

Mike Bianchi: Sadly, nobody is sad about Urban Meyer and his so-called 'retirement'.
How sad is it that there is no sadness? When Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer announced he was retiring Tuesday, the college football world reacted not with warm goodbyes and glowing tributes but with cynical comments and skeptical columns. There were no heavy hearts; only cocked eyebrows. Usually, when one of the greatest coaches of all time announces his retirement ostensibly for health reasons, there are cheers and tears and crying-in-our-beers. But on the day Urban Meyer supposedly retired, the first thought that crossed everybody's mind was, "Yeah, right." "I believe I won't coach again," Meyer said Tuesday. I believe I don't believe him.
