In the wake of Ohio State's victory in the Rose Bowl, Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer reaffirmed his belief that he has coached his last football game.
"I know this is relatively young, but I started young — 17 years as a head coach, 33 years doing this," Meyer, 54, said. "And just very fortunate, and I do believe I'm done."
That was music to the ears of his wife, Shelley, who also expressed her desire for him to leave the coaching profession after the Buckeyes' 28-23 win against Washington.
"I would be ecstatic if he didn't [coach again]," Shelley Meyer said. "I'm done. I want him to be done. He's too intense."
Urban Meyer, who will be succeeded by offensive coordinator Ryan Day, will become an assistant athletic director at Ohio State and will co-teach a course titled "Leadership and Character" in Ohio State's Fisher College of Business this spring.
