BREAKING NEWS: Urban Meyer to be Ohio State head coach

ESPN is reporting that former Florida Gators head coach Urban Meyer has accepted the head coaching position at Ohio State.

Meyer won two national championships in six years as the Gators coach, leaving a year ago, citing health concerns and a desire to spend more time with his family.

The 47-year-old native of Ohio will take over a program that has been hit recently with suspensions and the forced resignation of Jim Tressel.

Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith did not respond to a request for comment. No announcement has been set by Ohio State on the hiring.

In 10 seasons as a head coach—two at Bowling Green, two at Utah and six at Florida, Meyer had a 104-23 record with three national coach of the year awards.
