Tuesday, insane became the new normal.
Ohio State's head coach was asked a question on Tuesday about how the Buckeyes will handle recruiting over the next month.
Ohio State's athletic department says it will hold a news conference to announce the coaching transition from Meyer to Day at 2 p.m. ET.
"The style of coaching I've done for 33 years is very intense, very demanding". Losing top pass rusher Nick Bosa early in the season was a blow, but in past years, Ohio State has been able to move on from injuries without missing a beat.
Meyer owns an 85-9 record in seven seasons with the Buckeyes.
Meyer, 54, who has spent the last seven seasons with the Ohio State program, including winning a national championship in 2014, was calling to tell him that he was stepping down. The Buckeyes also won the Big Ten championship this season, beating Northwestern on Saturday. He is an Ohio State guy to the core. After stepping down at Florida because of stress-related health concerns, he took the Ohio State job before the 2012 season after Jim Tressel was forced out for lying to the NCAA amid a memorabilia-for-tattoos scandal. "And number two, win every game after that", he said. Yes, the Buckeyes exploited the Wolverines' elite defense in The Game, but that doesn't take away from the strides MI has made. Second-guessing is an Olympic sport in Ohio State's fan base. He said it's rare to have a succession plan in place, and called Day a "talented and gifted guy".
So, it would all make sense for him to come to the Browns, right? He knows that. Got to win games. Ryan Day may be great. "At each juncture, I gave Zach Smith the benefit of the doubt".
It's hard to argue with Smith's hiring record for major sports coaches. But there won't be any statue of Meyer out in front of the Horseshoe in Columbus. His hire of Chris Holtmann looks like a victor.
The state with a college football program far more successful than either of its NFL teams has made a change that could resonate throughout the NFL. Afterward, he served as an assistant coach for more than a decade before finally landing a head coaching position at Bowling Green.
Probably the most notable recruit Meyer signed at Utah was Eric Weddle, who would go on to be a five-time Pro Bowl safety with the San Diego Chargers and Baltimore Ravens.
"Dan Devine came in and he was different because he had a different style of leadership and how he taught".
Don't get me wrong. "But then we realized we had each other", Smith said. "In this racket, it's best when you go out by your own choice".
Smith said Meyer will be staying with the university in a new capacity, working coaches and athletes, but he was not specific about the role.
