(Photo by Steven Branscombe/Getty Images)Urban Meyer is sticking around Columbus after he finishes up as head coach of Ohio State football with the upcoming Pro Bowl.Details of his new role have been coming little by little.On Thursday, it was revealed that Meyer would be teaching a class on “character and leadership” at Ohio State. As you’d imagine, considering what has gone down with Meyer this year with the Zach Smith situation, it has drawn serious derision.He will also have a role in the athletic department, and not just helping out his football program.Urban Meyer will be an assistant athletic director, and Gene Smith has started to outline what he’ll be doing for the Buckeyes’ AD.From The Plain Dealer:Smith told cleveland.com that Meyer will hold the title of assistant athletic director, though he’s not yet sure of the specifics. He also explained how he might handle things if he feels Meyer is hanging around football in a way that could make life more difficult on new head coach Ryan Day.While his official duties are being nailed down, Smith says that he will be aiding in coach development and fundraising roles:Smith said Meyer will work to develop Ohio State’s other coaches. There are 68 assistant coaches across 36 sports, and they all want to be head coaches. While running the football program, Meyer oversaw a de facto head coach finishing school that was praised by Tom Herman, Chris Ash and Luke Fickell as they went to run their own teams. So Meyer can now spread that to other sports.Smith said Meyer will help in raising money. He’ll do speaking engagements on behalf of the athletic program. He’ll spend time with the athletic department’s leadership institute. Meyer said this week he’ll teach a leadership class.Those definitely seem like logical things for Meyer to be doing while he’s still at Ohio State. Smith also made sure to note that Meyer would not be micromanaging his successor, Ryan Day.Time will tell if it is a long term plan for Meyer, or if he will eventually return to coaching, as many suspect.[The Plain Dealer]last_img read more
