Urban Meyer, head coach for the Ohio State University football team, has retired after 17 years of coaching.  Meyer’s last game will be the 2019 Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.

 

The primary reason for Meyer’s retirement is his an arachnoid cyst, a medical condition he was born with that has become almost unbearable over the years. An arachnoid cyst is a pocket of spinal fluid in the brain’s arachnoid layer, between the thick, leathery dura that lines the skull and the pia that hugs the brain itself like plastic wrap. This cyst has caused the coach to suffer from severe headaches, he even collapsed during a game in October of 2018. Retiring might help the coach rest up and get stronger, maybe even strong enough to coach again.

 

Ryan Day, a 39 year old former quarterback for the New Hampshire Wildcats, will replace Urban Meyer as head coach. Meyer’s last game- the 2019 Rose Bowl- will hopefully end his coaching career on a high note after Ohio State’s back to back Big Ten titles.  Despite putting his coaching days behind him, Urban Meyer will forever be remembered as a talented football player and inspiring coach.
