We know now that Urban Meyer’s health problems were much more serious than he let on earlier in the year. Meyer announced Tuesday that he will retire as Ohio State head coach after the Rose Bowl. His health — Meyer has been dealing with the effects of an arachnoid cyst on his brain for years — was a significant factor in the decision. With Meyer’s decision to retire out in the open, Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith revisited a moment from earlier in the season when it became clear to observers that Meyer was really having some issues. During the second half of OSU’s Oct. 6 win over Indiana, Meyer dropped to a knee on the sideline and had to be tended to by medical personnel. Meyer brushed it off after the game but a few days later divulged during a press conference that it was related to the cyst. In an interview with Eleven Warriors, Smith said he was so concerned about what he saw of Meyer in the IU game that he was prepared to pull the coach off the sideline if it happened again. – Sam Cooper, news.yahoo – Read More
