Urban Meyer takes helm as OSU Head Football Coach

The once Jim Tressel-led Ohio State Football program has seen better days. This year has seen the Buckeyes’ highly regarded program turned upside down amid NCAA violations, suspensions and a 6-6 record, not to mention a tough 40-34 loss to conference rivals University of Michigan Wolverines Saturday afternoon.

The dark tunnel the Buckeyes walked through to storm the FieldTurf of “The Shoe” now has light at the end of it. Ohio State University believe they have solved their problems with the entry of renowned football coach Urban Meyer.

The Ohio native once held brief stints with the Bowling Green State University Falcons football team from 2001 to 2002, and Utah Utes football team from 2003 to 2004. He is most recognized for coaching the Florida Gators football team to two BCS National Championship Game victories during the 2006 and 2008 seasons.



ESPN reported Monday morning Meyer and Ohio State University have reached an agreement.

There are numerous reports that the ESPN game analyst has already agreed to a multiyear contract that could pay him almost $6 million a year, the Associated Press reports.

Meyers has an overall coaching record of 104-23. He has won three national coach of the year awards.
