Will Ryan Day Be With Ohio State Beyond 2018?

Urban Meyer is officially back as the head coach at Ohio State after serving a three game suspension. Ryan Day filled in as the interim in Meyer’s absence and looked more than ready to lead a team of his own. But Can the Buckeye program keep him around?

Year after year Urban Meyer brings in top recruiting classes and has the Buckeyes in contention for Big Ten titles and national championships. He’s also a guy the brightest up and coming coaches want to learn from.

Urban has had some great assistants at all of his stops including Charlie Strong, Dan Mullen, and Tom Herman just to name a few. Ryan Day looks to be next in line to be part of the Meyer coaching tree.

But the question is, how much longer will Ryan Day stay at Ohio State? If history tells us anything… he may already be looking to put the house on the market.

Urban surrounds himself with top coaching talent, and because of that, many of them only stay around a few years before being hired away to head coaching jobs of their own. This is year two for Day and you can be sure after being thrown into the fire at Ohio State and walking through the flames, he’ll be on the short list of almost every athletic director looking for a new head coach at the end of the season.

The Buckeyes will be lucky if Ryan Day decides to stay on for another year. And lets hope for his sake, he thinks his options over thoroughly. Some guys seem to be so excited to be the man in charge, they jump at the first offer, even if it may not be the best fit. Chris Ash to Rutgers anyone?

Yeah, how’s that working out?

Ryan Day was going to be a head coach before being thrust into the spotlight in early August. He did nothing but raise his stock by guiding the Bucks to three impressive wins, and the way he handled a difficult situation in interviews and press conferences was years ahead of his time.

The offers are going to come in plenty and my guess is this will be the last year we see Ryan Day in Scarlet and Gray. I just hope he exercises some of the wisdom we’ve seen over the past month and waits for the right offer.

Especially, if this comes true.
