On Thursday afternoon, a report suggested Urban Meyer knows what he wants to do following Ohio State's Rose Bowl game against Washington. Meyer intends to retire from the Buckeyes football program following the team's game against the Huskies and he didn't wait long to line up his next opportunity.

No, he won't be back on the sidelines - at least not yet. Meyer is reportedly set to teach a class at Ohio State next semester at the school's Fisher School of Business.

The class? In an interview with 10TV's Dom Tiberi, Meyer said he will be co-teaching a character and leadership course.

Twitter had a fun time with the headline, as you can imagine.

Meyer served a three-game suspension during the season due to his handling of domestic violence allegations against one of his former assistant coaches.

Meanwhile, Ohio State gears up for its final game of the season against Washington which kicks off on January 1 at 5:00 p.m. ET.
