Urban Meyer has interesting response when asked if he will coach again

That said, it's still nowhere near certain, and any announcement is unlikely to come until after the Rose Bowl.

A second-tier job with less pressure could be just what Meyer needs to continue coaching with the cyst on his brain that causes severe headaches and makes it hard for an emotional guy to do a high-stress job. The Buckeyes will play in the Rose Bowl against Washington on New Year's Day - Meyer's coaching finale. But he didn't blame only his health for stepping away.

"At the end of the day, I'm very convinced that you're going to be judged on how you are as a husband and as a father and not on how many bowl games we won", Meyer said at a campus news conference.

Smith said the university did not do a nationwide search, emphasizing stability and consistency. It was at Florida where Meyer became a household name, winning his first two national championships (2006, 2008).

"This will keep me healthier than not, because I'll have to get back in better shape, and I'll have something to do every morning", he said. But with God, my family, and friends, I would like to announce that I am decommitting from The Ohio State University. He was caught lying and deleting text messages by a university committee investigating why Meyer harbored a domestic abuser such as Smith on his staff for years. Mark Richt will be 59 next season and isn't on the hot seat, but if the program stalls out in the next two years, Richt could choose to retire, opening up a spot for Meyer to swoop in.

Meyer acknowledged the investigation was among the reasons for his decision: "The decision was the result of cumulative events".

Meyer didn't feel Tuesday was the day to dissect his legacy but he briefly touched on it.

"I'm sure it will. I can lie to you and say it is not important to me".

The timing of the announcement was based on recruiting, he said; it needed to be announced before the early signing period opens December 19.

Notre Dame finishes 3rd in final College Football Playoff rankings
UCF clinched a 13-0 season (and Colley Matrix national title) with a 34-27 victory against Auburn in last season's Peach Bowl. Notre Dame is making its debut in the CFP and becomes the 10th different team overall to advance to the four-team format.

The Buckeyes' strong finish this season belied on-the-field problems that made for a stressful season for Meyer and his staff. He has never lost more than two games in any one season with the Buckeyes.

Here's a look at Meyer's career vs. Penn State. The Buckeyes also won the Big Ten championship this season, beating Northwestern on Saturday.

Is this it for Urban Meyer as a coach?

Ohio State finished the season at No. 6.

Rutgers coach Chris Ash was defensive coordinator for UrbanMeyer for two seasons at Ohio State, including the 2014 national championship team.

Meyer, who had a "core values" banner in the locker room demanding his players treat women with respect, apologized to Ohio State fans following word that he would be suspended.

It appeared to be a dream job for the Toledo native.

Meyer's salary is $7.6 million in 2018 and he has about $38 million left on his contract.
