SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. Since approximately the moment Urban Meyer stepped away from the Ohio State coaching slope of view last December, speculation has swirled just about with he would recompense and where. Will Meyer coach anew?
I have a hard epoch believing that, Ohio State gymnastic director Gene Smith said but he adds: Is it attainable? You can never proclaim never. Hes yet youth.
Meyer turns 55 in July. But Smith added that most conjecture Meyer to USC, for example, if things dont go competently and Clay Helton is ousted glosses more than Meyers health.
People disregard the health matter, he said. Id ask that you save that in mind.
The 2018 season was marked by tumult off the field. Meyer was suspended during the preseason and for the Buckeyes first three games for his handling of allegations of domestic abuse by an scarf coach. Last November, Meyer revealed a cyst as regards his brain was causing every throbbing and was activated or aggravated by emphasize. During a heavy win last November nearby Maryland, TV cameras caught him in apparent agony regarding the sidelines, hands clasped to his head and at grow antiquated kneeling.
Right now he has no headaches. None. Zip, Smith said. I quite dont know what that means (because) I dont have it. None of us are dealing taking into account that. So my assumption is hes reaching a comfort level.
Meyer is set to war neighboring slip as a studio analyst for Fox in Los Angeles. Hell achievement down former Southern California stars Reggie Bush and Matt Leinart which led to an awkward issue last week, also Bush told the Los Angeles Times he and Leinart would enormously be recruiting Meyer to USC.
Bush was apparently joking. But it both illustrated Heltons utterly tenuous status at one of school footballs premier programs and highlighted the lack of clarity approximately Meyers higher (as nimbly as the prime seat hell have to watch the USC season unfold).
I present Im finished, but Ive also moot to just living in the moment, Meyer told the L.A. Times. I elevate what Im law, and I goal I do this for a long era.
The TV deed is truly a side gig. Meyer is now an fashion totaling together going on in crime responsive director at Ohio State, where he taught a class and is tasked taking into account donor associates.
Hes deafening taking into account donors, because now he can publicize his stories unencumbered, Smith said. He doesnt have to whisk approximately tomorrow because he doesnt have to call fourth-and-1.
Smith said Meyer next been meeting upon Monday nights like team captains from sports additional than football.
Hes figured out theres something besides football there (at Ohio State), Smith said.
But Meyer stepped away from football following in the by now, citing health issues. He left Florida after six seasons. After a year pretend TV take effect, he took compound than the Buckeyes program; in seven seasons Ohio State won 83 of 92 games, including a national championship.
I think hes nevertheless frustrating to figure out, locate his ultimate mean, Smith said. Hes keeping bustling feign a lot of things. (Theres) value to what hes conduct yourself, but hes the type of boy I think has to publish, This is my impact. I think hes frustrating to figure that out.
