But perhaps most important to Ohio State fans, Meyer is a flawless 7-0 against rival MI. Much like Meyer's health concerns about his heart were real in the past, there remains a pocket of college football fans who don't believe it and they think Meyer will be back on the sideline in the future. Meyer had brain surgery to drain the cyst in the spring of 2014, and another surgery is an option for treatment. "The NCAA rules allow me to take another official visit to meet with coach Day, so I am going to do that after the state championship game".
"I thought he was very good in the classroom, teaching me the offense and the system, breaking it down and making it very simplistic where I would be able to understand it and translate it to the field", Murphy said. This also isn't the first time Meyer has stepped away from coaching. His coaching wisdom and his elite ability to motivate and prepare a team is something everyone on this staff not only appreciates, but learns from and carries forward. With one game left to play this season, he has an overall win-loss record of 186-32. His last game will be in the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day.

After San Francisco fired Kelly and his staff, Day joined the Buckeyes as the program's quarterbacks coach and was promoted to offensive coordinator following the departure of Tim Beck. Or could one of the most successful college coaches of all time be thinking about jumping to, say, the Browns, joining forces with the guy who skewered the O with an Sooners flag? His tally includes 11 bowl wins, the inaugural 2015 College Football Playoff among them. Meyer's 2006 title set in place seven straight championships for the SEC and heralded the ascendance of the conference's national domination.

Then there's Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano. He said he planned on coming back to coach in 2019. The Utes finished No. 4 in the final AP Top 25, and were the fourth undefeated team in program history.

Ohio State suspended Meyer without pay for the first three games of 2018 after he and athletic director Gene Smith "failed to take sufficient management action" on spousal abuse allegations involving ex-assistant coach Zach Smith.
