(FOX 8) — COLUMBUS, Ohio – Urban Meyer will announce his retirement Tuesday.

That’s according to a press release from The Ohio State University.

There will be a press conference Tuesday at 2 p.m. where Meyer will make that announcement.

He will retire following Ohio State’s appearance in the Rose Bowl.

That game will be played on New Year’s Day.

Offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Ryan Day will take over for Meyer.
