  • Ohio State University football coach Urban Meyer to announce retirement

"No disrespect to the other bowl games, because they're awesome, but the Rose is the one we've always looked forward to", Meyer said.

On Tuesday, Ohio State announced Meyer would be leaving following the conclusion of his seventh season with the team and offensive coordinator Ryan Day will become the new head coach.

At Florida, he retired in similar fashion after the SEC Championship in the 2009 season, then unretired and stayed at Florida for one more year.

Recruitment: Meyer was hired as the head football coach at Ohio State on November 28, 2011.

Meyer's retirement comes on the heels of a tumultuous year in Columbus, Ohio, in which he was suspended for the first three games of the season after an investigation revealed that he mishandled domestic assault allegations made against former wide receivers coach Zach Smith, who was sacked in late June.

The Hawks are hopeful that first-round draft pick Trae Young will be able to emerge from his shooting slump. Robert Covington added 17 points, 10 rebounds and four steals in a spirited effort for the losing side.

Recruitment: Ohio State's battle for Young came down to the local school, Maryland, and another national power in Alabama.

His time at Ohio State wasn't without controversy. Meyer's last game with the Buckeyes will be their Rose Bowl showdown with Washington on January 1. He has never lost more than two games in any one season with the Buckeyes.

If Meyer's career is actually done, he'll walk away with a 186-32 career record, 10-3 bowl record (pending the Rose Bowl) and three national titles amid stints at Bowling Green, Utah, Florida and Ohio State. In addition to the national championship he won in 2014, Meyer won two previously with the Gators by winning the BCS championship. Two years later he won his third national title by leading the Buckeyes in the first-ever College Football Playoffs.

No conference is as desperate for a good showing this bowl season as the Pac-12, which doesn't have another team in a New Year's Six bowl and went just 1-8 in bowls last season. The Utes finished No. 4 in the final AP Top 25, and were the fourth undefeated team in program history. Prior to becoming a head coach, Meyer served as an assistant at Notre Dame (1996-2000), Colorado State (1990-95), Illinois State (1988-89) and Ohio State (1986-87), where he learned under mentor Earl Bruce.
