The university didn't say why he was retiring, but Meyer has said he suffers from debilitating headaches caused by an arachnoid cyst in his brain. As a result of knowing about the accusations, Meyer was suspended the first three games of this season.
What OU did with Bud Wilkinson replacing Jim Tatum, and Chuck Fairbanks replacing Jim Mackenzie, and Barry Switzer replacing Fairbanks, and Lincoln Riley replacing Bob Stoops, Ohio State did with Ryan Day replacing Meyer. If Florida State is mired in mediocrity for the next two years, they could pull the plug and chase Meyer to see if he'd be interested in returning to the Sunshine State.
Despite the controversy that swirled around him during the 2018 season and previously while coach at Florida, Meyer will go down as one of the best and most influential coaches in college football history.
In the seven seasons in Columbus, Ohio State has won more than 90 percent of its games (82-9) including three Big Ten championships and a national championship in 2014.

He also rejected the United Kingdom government's position that the case is purely hypothetical and therefore inadmissible. A final ruling on the case is due to be made at a later date.
Coach Ryan Day now serves as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, according to the school's website. It isn't healthy but I came to work every day with fear of letting people like Archie Griffith and the our great state of OH down because this is home.
Day was becoming a hot name in coaching circles and his ability to step in and guide the Buckeyes during Meyer's suspension demonstrated his ability as an up-and-coming coach.
Meyer has a 82-9 record during his time in Columbus, went 7-0 against MI and also finishes with a 54-4 record in Big Ten play. Meyer then retired again citing health issues and made a decision to move into a broadcasting career with ESPN.
Pressed further, Meyer then said he is "fairly certain" he will not coach again. Brown, 67, will be 68 years old when the 2019 season kicks off. In 2018, he was placed on leave due to an investigation into one of the assistant coach's domestic abuse allegations. He's a second-year Ohio State assistant who had never before been a head coach. He was also the first to post three 13-win seasons in a four-year span and win two BCS titles. Meyer has about $38 million left on his contract. He wouldn't be going back to Bowling Green or a program like Utah when he took that job in 2003 and the National Football League doesn't appear to be an interest.
