Urban Meyer will be coaching Ohio State's football team this season, once his three-game suspension to start the 2018 year is up, but questions are still swirling about his future with the Buckeyes following Wednesday night's press conference.

College football insider Brett McMurphy is among those who believe this whole saga is far from over.

The Stadium reporter appeared on the radio today and predicted that there's a lot more to come with Urban Meyer and the Buckeyes.

"By no means do I think this is over," he said.

McMurphy said during another radio appearance that he would be surprised if Meyer is still at Ohio State in 2019.

From the Oregonian:

“I would be stunned if Urban Meyer coaches (at Ohio State) after the end of this season. He had heart issues at Florida. Now he has a memory problem? He has no problem remember to text a recruit at midnight, he has no problem with what play to call on fourth and 1 against Michigan.

I’ll take it at face value, all Urban Meyer has demonstrated over the years is that he has a problem telling the truth."

Meyer will be able to return to the sidelines for Ohio State's fourth game of the season. The Buckeyes are still entering the year with Big Ten title and College Football Playoff aspirations.

Ohio State opens the year on Sept. 1 against Oregon State. Ryan Day is coaching the Buckeyes in Meyer's absence.
