OSU's Meyer has surgery, is back today

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio State coach Urban Meyer had a short medical procedure over the weekend.

A school spokesman said the surgery was to remove fluid from a cyst on Meyer's brain. The cyst was originally discovered in 1998 when Meyer was an assistant at Notre Dame.

The operation was to alleviate headaches that the former Florida coach had been experiencing the past few weeks.

The school said Meyer was doing well and would be on the field when Ohio State begins spring drills today.
