A move that everyone has known about for some time has finally become official. Yesterday, as has been widely speculated, Ohio State announced that Urban Meyer will be their next football coach.
What Meyer brings to the table is an incredible winning pedigree, In his career thus far he has two national championships and a coach of the year title. He also became one of only three coaches in history to win at least 100 games in his first ten years. His record is a staggering 104-23 and is 7-1 in bowl games.
After a year away from the game, the 47-year old Meyer returns to the program where his coaching career began. A native of Ashtabula, Ohio; he grew up as a fan of the Buckeyes. Meyer got his first sideline experience as a Graduate Assistant in 1986, under Earle Bruce. His coaching idol is famed Buckeye coach Woody Hayes, and he has referred to his new position as his dream job.
