Reports: Urban Meyer agrees to coach at Ohio State



Urban Meyer is coming back to coaching, and he's taking over beleaguered Ohio State, the Associated Press reports.

ESPN did not cite a source for its report early Monday saying the ex-Florida coach would be hired by the Buckeyes, but Meyer worked for the sports network the past year. There are unconfirmed reports he has agreed to a multiyear contract that will pay him almost $6 million a year.

Multiple sources are reporting that Ohio State is expected to issue a release regarding the Meyer hiring later this morning and likely to schedule a news conference for around 5 p.m. Monday.
