Meyer, Day and athletic director Gene Smith will conduct a 2 p.m. press conference Tuesday afternoon to discuss the developments.

"I plan on coaching", he said on October 29. In 2014, Meyer had brain surgery to address a congenital arachnoid cyst, but he still deals with occasional painful headaches. Asked if he would definitely return to Ohio State next year, he answered, "Yes".

Meyer, who also won two national championships (2006 and 2008) at Florida, is in his 17th season as a head coach. Plus, in mid-summer he was put on leave by OSU and then suspended from the first three games due to fallout from the way he handled former receivers coach Zach Smith, whose ex-wife had accused Smith of domestic violence.

If Meyer's career is actually done, he'll walk away with a 186-32 career record, 10-3 bowl record (pending the Rose Bowl) and three national titles amid stints at Bowling Green, Utah, Florida and Ohio State.
