"I think Ryan and Dwayne, that's one of the best development jobs I've ever seen", Meyer said before the Big Ten championship last week. He also says he is not sure he is able to coach at the intense, demanding level he has used for more than 30 years.
This is one of the most accomplished head coaches of all time and to lure him out of retirement, it's going to have to be an elite job. "He had an opportunity to audition in a different way, not relative to winning on the field, but how he mastered leading, not just the football staff but everyone around it", Smith said.
Meyer, who also won two national championships (2006 and 2008) at Florida, is in his 17th season as a head coach.
Day reportedly turned down a head-coaching offer from Mississippi State and the Tennessee Titans' offensive coordinator role to stay at Ohio State after last season and is now getting the opportunity to lead the Buckeyes as the head man. Ohio State then confirmed the move and will hold a news conference at 2 p.m. EST.
Meyer said a lot of things contributed to his decision to retire, including the Zach Smith situation, but he mostly focused on his headaches. The investigation showed he tolerated bad behavior for years from Smith, including domestic-violence accusations, drug addiction, lies and other acts that directly clash with the values Meyer touts publicly.
Meyer didn't feel Tuesday was the day to dissect his legacy but he briefly touched on it. "I am grateful to Buckeye Nation, the students, faculty, our administration and, most importantly, our student-athletes for their support and respect for this program during this time". He said the move needed to be made before the early signing period opens on December 19.
Former players were full of praise for Meyer.

West Ham ended Newcastle's three-match winning run as Javier Hernandez struck twice in a 3-0 victory at St James Park. The opener was the sixth time this season that United have conceded a goal in the first 15 minutes of a match.
Day did have one like that stood out, and Buckeye fans will love it. Meyer has dealt with a number health issues throughout his coaching career - some that had returned this season. He has never lost more than two games in any one season with the Buckeyes. Asked if he would definitely return to Ohio State next year, he answered, "Yes".
Meyer picked Florida because the Gators were better positioned to win national championships. He said he planned on coming back to coach in 2019.
Meyer previously stepped down as head coach at Florida for health reasons.
Meyer apologized to Ohio State fans following the news that he would be suspended. 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.
Dallas Cowboys vs. Washington Redskins score
The highlight was a 90-yard score that set the mark for the longest pass play in the National Football League this season. The two have already shown that they are capable of providing that much-needed stability in that unit of the defense.

Deontay Wilder vs. Tyson Fury
Asked which fight Wilder would prefer - Joshua or Fury - the 33-year-old replied: "I would love to go for the other titles". It was a great fight, so let's do it again. "That's what we proved tonight, and I'm ready to do it again".
