This afternoon in a press conference Urban Meyer announced he would be retiring from Ohio State.

The Buckeye's head football coach announced after the Rose Bowl on January 1, he would step down as coach. Gene Smith, Ohio State athletic director, announced offensive coordinator, Ryan Day, will be promoted to head coach on January 2. Reactions spread fast on social media today and we caught up with some local residents to get their reaction on news of Urban Meyer.

"Well it makes me really sad," said Kirstyn Schneider. "I'm an OSU alum and he's brought us lots of championships and wins. Makes me sad, but I understand him doing it for health concerns."

"I was hoping he'd stay another year," Joe Vaske said. "He said he was going to, but I understand maybe he's had head problems. So I can understand him leaving, but I hate to see him go."   

Both Schneider and Vaske believe the program will have continued success following Meyer's departure.
