Ohio State University football coach Urban Meyer is stepping down after the Rose Bowl.

Ohio State will play Washington in the Rose Bowl on January 1 after winning the Big Ten championship over Northwestern on Saturday. Meyer's dealt with a mess of his making in addition to health problems.

Day, in his second year as an offensive coordinator at OSU, led the team through preseason camp and those first three games before Meyer returned full time to the sideline.

Meyer is coming off back-to-back Big Ten championships and is heading into a January 1 Rose Bowl matchup against Washington.

"I think he was one of the kindest, most generous men", said Marge Frazier, who visited the downtown statue. Thursday, and a second memorial service will be held Thursday morning at the church, starting at 11 a.m.

Less than a year later, he was hired at Ohio State. The Buckeyes won at least 10 games in each of Meyer's seven seasons with the school, a run that was highlighted by a national championship in 2014 when Ohio State went 14-1 and rolled to the title win over Oregon. This also isn't the first time Meyer has stepped away from coaching.

His time at Ohio State wasn't without controversy. And, of course, Meyer beat hated rival MI all seven times he faced them, including the last three with Jim Harbaugh as head coach. Meyer came under fire for his response - or lack thereof - in regards to allegations of domestic abuse against one of his assistant coaches.

He started his head-coaching career at Bowling Green in 2001 and moved on to Utah two seasons later before taking the Florida job in 2005 and rocketing to the top of the college football coaching ranks, a peer of Alabama coach Nick Saban in terms of respect and ability.
