DALLAS (105.3 THE FAN) - Ohio State coach Urban Meyer to retire after the team plays in the Rose Bowl, according to reports. 

Offensive coordinator Ryan Day is expected to be named as the new coach.

After seven years and a national championship at Ohio State, the 54-year-old Meyer will formally announce his departure Tuesday at a news conference.

The university didn't say why he was retiring, but Meyer has said he suffers from debilitating headaches caused by an arachnoid cyst in his brain.

He was also battered this year by an offseason issue involving a now-fired assistant coach that led to Meyer's suspension for the first three games of the season.

Meyer was 81-9 with a national championship at Ohio State after six years at Florida, where he won two national titles.
