Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer will reportedly step down after the Rose Bowl, according to sources to Yahoo! Sports.

Ohio State plays Washington on New Year's Day.

Meyer, 54, coached Tim Tebow to a Heisman Trophy and Florida to two BCS titles before heading to Ohio State where he won a national title in 2014.

Meyer's health may have played a role in the decision. He had brain surgery in 2014 because of a cyst in his brain.

Offensive coordinator Ryan Day will take over as head coach. He served as interim head coach when Meyer served a 3-game suspension at the start of the year.
