COLUMBUS (WTOL) - Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer is retiring after the Rose Bowl, a decision he made after coming to grips with a cyst in his brain that had developed in recent years.

The cyst gave the 59-year-old regular headaches and made him fear for his long-term health.

Ryan Day, 39, will take over as head coach of the program.

The offensive coordinator took over this season for three games when Meyer sat out with a suspension.
