With former Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer possibly joining FOX Sports as an analyst, many people are wondering if Meyer and his family will pack up and leave Ohio. Shelley Meyer, Urban's wife, addressed the concerns on Friday.

Taking to Twitter on Friday morning, Shelley Meyer responded to a concerned message and stated that the family is not moving.

She explained that their grandkids are still in Ohio and that her son Nate plays baseball at UC.

Urban Meyer announced that he would be leaving the Buckeyes football program back in December.

In seven seasons at Ohio State, Meyer finished with a record of 83-9 and never lost more than twice in a season. He led the Buckeyes to seven straight division titles, three Big Ten Conference titles, and a national championship by winning the first-ever College Football Playoff tournament.

His final game came in the Rose Bowl against Washington. The Buckeyes won the game 28-23 in a game that was much more lopsided than the final score would indicate.

Meyer's college career includes stints with Bowling Green, Utah, and more famously, Florida. His all-time record as head coach is 187-32.

He led the Gators to two BCS National Championship titles in 2006 and 2008.
