Yesterday, Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer finally confirmed the suspicions many fans and reporters had. Due to health reasons also combined with family reasons, the seven year almost unanimously loved coach to Ohio’s team stepped down as leader of the team in order to focus on his family as well as heal physically. Urban will definitely be missed by fans and players alike. He was a great coach boasting a 82-9 overall record as well as a national championship in 2014 and 3 Big 10 championships. Although it will be very hard to fill such big shoes, the Ohio State front office thinks they have their man in former OC Ryan Day.
Day has been coaching football for 15 years with stints in Temple, Boston College, the Philadelphia Eagles and the San Francisco 49ers. Day joined the Ohio State staff in 2017 after leaving Temple for the second time in order to work with renowned coach Meyer. Although Day has never had a head coach position, many people are confident in him and believe that he will do great as the successor to Meyer’s legacy in Columbus. We will find this out next season as Day takes over head coach responsibilities after the Rose Bowl this season.
