A new tweet from Urban Meyer's wife, Shelley Meyer, about his new job at Ohio State is going viral on social media.

Ohio State University cancelled classes today due to the extremely cold temperatures hitting the Midwest.

The university said in a release that the campus was closed and only "essential" employees should show up to work.

Urban Meyer, of course, has a new job at Ohio State. He's an assistant athletic director for the Buckeyes.

It seems like Urban's wife, Shelley, is hoping that assistant athletic directors are "essential" so she can get some time alone in the house...

" an asst AD “essential”? I read that OSU is closed but 'essential' staff should report. #PleaseSayYes #WhatWillIDoWUrbsAllDay #RetirementWhatever," she tweeted.

That's pretty funny.

Seriously, though, Shelley Meyer is very happy that her husband is no longer coaching and can spend more time with the family.

"It's an end to something that we've been doing for a long, long, long time," she said after the Rose Bowl. "I'm sad, but I'm really happy for him because this is what needed to happen right now.

"He's been fun again. He's back to the Urban I knew when he wasn't so stressed out and anxious and having headaches."
