  • Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer will step down after the Rose Bowl

The Rose Bowl will be Urban Meyer's final game as coach of Ohio State.

Meyer is expected to formally announced at a press conference Tuesday afternoon that he's retiring as the head coach of the Buckeyes, following this year's Rose Bowl game against Washington. He will be replaced by offensive coordinator Ryan Day. In 2014, Meyer had brain surgery to address a congenital arachnoid cyst, but he still deals with occasional painful headaches.

Pete Thamel of Yahoo Sports broke the news on Twitter Tuesday morning.

Meyer, who is 54, previously stepped away to deal with his health at Florida, only to return.

The central bank has already hiked rates three times this year and is largely expected to raise the rate again in December. That "just below" phrasing seemed to indicate that the Fed is almost done raising rates for the time being.

"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.

Meyer has piled up wins at Ohio State after a similar run over six years at Florida that included two national championships. Plus, in mid-summer he was put on leave by OSU and then suspended from the first three games due to fallout from the way he handled former receivers coach Zach Smith, whose ex-wife had accused Smith of domestic violence.

CBSSports.com reports Meyer's teams went 85-9 in his seven seasons as Ohio State coach, including a 55-4 Big Ten record.
