The university announced the move Tuesday.
That win signified everything about Meyer's seven-year run.
While that report suggested Meyer would coach the 2019 season before stepping down, that won't be the case as Ohio State confirmed Tuesday morning that the 54-year-old Meyer will retire from coaching following the Buckeyes' appearance in this season's Rose Bowl game New Year's Day.
Meyer insisted he was going to coach beyond 2018 but more recently he had been noncommittal on his coaching future. When Meyer started at Bowling Green, the team had only won two games the previous season. The stress involved in coaching exacerbates the headaches he experiences.
An Ohio native who played his college football at Cincinnati, Meyer's first coaching job at the collegiate level came as a graduate assistant on Earle Bruce's OSU staff in 1986-87.

Seattle expected to land National Hockey League franchise
The NHL's newest franchise will join Major League Baseball's Seattle Mariners and the WNBA's Seattle Storm in the city. Nevertheless, the idea of Pacific Northwest hockey rivalry between Seattle and Vancouver is pretty cool.
Brown, who was hired to coach the Tar Heels last week after spending five years off the field, said Meyer's decision has put things into perspective for him.
"I believe I will not coach again", he added that he was fairly certain in that response.
Meyer's retirement comes on the heels of a tumultuous year in Columbus, Ohio, in which he was suspended for the first three games of the season after an investigation revealed that he mishandled domestic assault allegations made against former wide receivers coach Zach Smith, who was sacked in late June. He's not coming to a Group of 5 program or a middling program with no track record of success. He's the only Buckeye coach to never lose against That Team Up North. Meyer beat Jim Harbaugh's teams four times and Brady Hoke's teams three times in his tenure at Ohio State.
"A myriad of factors contributed to Meyer's decision", Thamel wrote, "but sources say foremost among them was his happiness with the state of the Ohio State program he inherited seven years ago". He would be able to recruit the best athletes from one of the more talent-rich states and bring FSU back to competing with Clemson for ACC supremacy and playoff berths.
His time at Ohio State wasn't without controversy. That led to Florida's worst season under Meyer, a 8-5 (4-4 SEC) mark in 2010. He had an undefeated, 12-0 season during his first year. If the changes don't work, USC could be making a change. Notre Dame is in the playoff and Brian Kelly certainly isn't in danger of losing his job but has been linked to the National Football League in the past. And, of course, Meyer beat hated rival MI all seven times he faced them, including the last three with Jim Harbaugh as head coach.
