The hell is this?
Anyway Ubran will be there a while. His family is from Ohio and he feels at home. It will be more than 5 years.
Urban has a QB that fits his system in Braxton Miller and a damn good defense this year. Recruits are lining up and the Big 10 is honestly pretty weak. The Ohio State will be at the top of the Big 10 for the forseeable future.

"MORE THAN FIVE YEARS"
Since he's been coaching, he's never lasted OVER 5 years.
1990-95 Colorado St. WR's coach
1996-00 Notre Dame WR's coach
2001-02 Bowling Green Head coach..
2003-04 Utah's head coach...
2005-10 Florida's head coach..
See, the fact of the mattter is. Urban Meyer comes in, revamps the football team, then dips... It's a known fact.. Urban had his ideal situation at Florida and only lasted 5 years, because of "health problems" and so on..
I don't see Urban being there more than 5 years like you stated. I see him being there tops, 3 or 4 years..
Urban Myer's a great a coach, don't get me wrong, but he's not loyal...
Bring the Pain, Go Dawgs!

OSU is like a homecoming to Meyer. If there ever was a point in being loyal that would be a pretty good time.
And come on are we shocked he didn't last as a WR coach at Colorado St? ND? Are we shocked he didn't stay at Utah? Thats what coahces do they move up.
Florida had to have been a tough decision. But now he gets to come back home to Ohio. And you never really said anything about coaching. I could see Meyer staying at Ohio State for life. Not like Joe Pa and PSU but always being a part of the program for many many years even after he is done coaching.
Be honest Meyer wouldn't have taken a gig at a school that is facing sanctions if he didn't plan on staying awhile. By that I mean at least 5 years. I can actually see him being there longer. Quite possibly even double digit years depending on how it goes.
Urban had a great thing at Florida but it wasn't his dream job. His dream job was either coming home to OSU or going to ND. Florida wasn't either. He accomplished plenty at Florida.

Why don't you draw the white house, and picket fence????
Lets be real, history shows the guy doesn't stay too long.
John Brantley came to Florida, 7-5 season i believe it was, Meyer, also gets a win from JO pa in the bowl that same year, then leaves..
There was good period of time, that i actually thought Meyer would quit and be Tebow's manager. lol
Meyer's career record as coach looks VERY VERY good, but he's not loyal, and NOtre Dame, not OSU, is the goal!

What in the hell are you talking about.
And as I said before no one wants to stay a WR coach at Colorado State forever. No one wants to stay in Utah forever.
To think Meyer is going to stay at OSU through what they are going through now for the next couple years then step down after he starts getting full recruting classes and those recruits become juniors and seniors you're insane. Meyer will stay over 5 years and at least see a senior class of his recruits leave the program.
Meyer accomplished plenty at this time in Florida and saw a chance to step away for a year and then take over one of the two schools he has always wanted to coach.
OSU is going to roll in the Big 10 for the next quite a few seasons.
