Urban Meyer had a simple answer to a question about whether he would return as Ohio State's head coach next season: "I plan to coach."
This comes after multiple media outlets reported last week that this would be Meyer's final season in Columbus as Ohio State's head coach.
Meyer's assertion came as part of a light-hearted Monday press conference. Immediately following his response to the question regarding his future, Meyer smiled and began to recite things that concerned him about Northwestern, joking that he was focused on the game at hand.
Earlier in the press conference, Meyer was asked about his health, well-being, future and happiness and he repeatedly answered with "good," smiling the whole time.
However one wishes to read into it, Monday's press conference featured a happy, lighthearted Meyer who was quick to joke and have fun at the podium. And that's certainly been missing at times this season.
