The Rose Bowl will be the final game for Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer who will officially announce his retirement in a 2 p.m.. press conference on Tuesday. Offensive coordinator Ryan Day will take over as head coach for the program officially on January 2nd. 

According to North Carolina coach Mack Brown, and The Athletic, Meyer's health played into his decision to call it quits.

In looking at Meyer's 18 seasons as a head coach, there's no doubt he'll go down as one of the greatest in college football history.

However, his retirement comes at the back end of a controversial season for Meyer. He was suspended for the first three games of the year after an investigation concluded that he mishandled domestic assault allegations made against his former wide receivers coach Zach Smith.

So how does that, along with his list of accomplishments, impact his legacy? For John Fricke of the Morning Show, Meyer will always be known for the scandal.

"Three National Titles--I will always associate Urban Meyer to the fact that he flat-out lied. Sorry, I will." 

For co-host Hugh Douglas, he believes the scandal will have no impact on the Meyer's football legacy.

"I think there will be some [people> that will like to bring this up when they have conversations about Urban Meyer but as far as his legacy as a head coach? No. I don't think this stains his legacy at all."
