Ohio State adopts the Oklahoma model to replace Urban Meyer

Ohio State Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer with his wife Shelley Meyer after defeating the Northwestern Wildcats in the Big Ten conference championship game at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Meyer, who denied friction with athletics director Gene Smith, plans to retire from coaching, according to a release from Ohio State distributed Tuesday morning.
Now that Urban Meyer has announced he is retiring as Ohio State head coach after the team's appearance in the Rose Bowl in January, the inevitable next step is to project what happens next with the highly successful coach.
The university will announce his retirement at a 2 p.m. ET news conference.
Meyer, 54, has been battling the effects of an arachnoid cyst on his brain, which was diagnosed in 1998 but has worsened in recent years. He has three national championships on his resume - one at Ohio State in 2014 and two at Florida in 2006 and 2008 - to go along with two undefeated seasons (2004 at Utah, 2012 at Ohio State). He said the move needed to be made before the early signing period opens on December 19.
One of the primary speculations is a jump to the National Football League for Meyer, who has never coached at the pro level. That led to Florida's worst season under Meyer, a 8-5 (4-4 SEC) mark in 2010. A startling blowout loss at unranked Purdue on October 20 pushed Ohio State to the fringe of the national championship chase and prompted questions about Meyer's future and he was forced to address speculation that he would step down at the end of the season.
Meyer acknowledged the investigation was among the reasons for his decision: "The decision was the result of cumulative events". 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.
At that time, Meyer said he and his staff had not previously known about the allegation. "At each juncture, I gave Zach Smith the benefit of the doubt". With one game left to play this season, he has an overall win-loss record of 186-32. But that immediately drew skepticism, along with questions about how long Meyer had known about the accusations - and whether he had reported them, as required by Title IX. He is an Ohio State guy.
