With the season almost done for the Ohio State Buckeyes, Urban Meyer's days as a head coach are truly coming to an end. Well, at least that's what we're being led to believe right now.

Once the Rose Bowl is over, Meyer will hand the keys to Ohio State's football team to Ryan Day.

It'll be a bittersweet moment for Ohio State, especially after all the success that Meyer had with the program. His 82-9 record with the Buckeyes is more than enough to validate his status as one of the best coaches in the nation.

This season was full of ups and downs for the Buckeyes, but Meyer did an excellent job preparing his roster during every big moment. It won't end with an opportunity to win the national championship, but dominating Northwestern in the Big Ten Championship is a solid consolation prize.

Meyer will leave another coaching gig behind due to medical issues, as his arachnoid cyst has been a huge detriment to his health this year. Although it sounds like he's ready to permanently leave the sidelines, he continues to get asked if there is any interest in coaching again in the future.

It appears that Meyer is going to close the book on this chapter of his life.

From 247Sports:

"I believe this is it," Meyer said. "Once again, that’s between myself and my family, but I don’t believe I’ll coach football again. I feel like I am leaving on my own terms.

After an incredible seven-year run with Ohio State, Meyer will have the chance to enjoy football without dealing with all the pressure and stress that comes with it.

Ohio State and Washington will kick off at 5:00 p.m. ET on New Year's Day.

Do you think Meyer will end his tenure with a victory?
