Having coached his teams to winning three national championships – one of them with a third-string quarterback – Urban Meyer exhibits exemplary leadership in situations with the highest amounts of pressure and scrutiny.

Urban Meyer joined FOX Sports as a college football studio analyst prior to the 2019 season. He joins Reggie Bush, Matt Leinart, Brady Quinn, and host Rob Stone on the network’s college football pregame show. Meyer is one of the most successful college football coaches of all time, having won three national championships in his career; he specializes in eliciting Peak Performance in all situations. Urban is renowned for being adaptable and adjusting his plans to bring the best out of his resources in any given moment.

Meyer’s 17 seasons as a head coach featured a record of 187-32 and positioned him with the third-highest winning percentage in college football history at .853, trailing only Knute Rockne and Frank Leahy. His teams were 12-3 in bowl games – second-best, all-time – and 27-3 in “rivalry” games.

Meyer’s Ohio State Buckeyes were, for seven seasons, on top of the college football world. The team won the inaugural College Football Playoff national championship in 2014 and won Big Ten Conference titles in 2014, 2017, and 2018. His teams were dominant in Big Ten games with a best-ever 7-0 record vs. Michigan and a 54-4 overall record in Big Ten games, including an NCAA record 30 consecutive conference victories.

A six-year run at the University of Florida was so successful that both The Sporting News and Sports Illustrated named Meyer “Coach of the Decade” in December 2009. He guided the Gators to national championships in 2006 and again in 2008 and to a record of 65-15.

Meyer started his coaching career at Bowling Green, where he turned a BGSU team coming off six consecutive losing seasons into a Top 25 program with back-to-back 8-3 and 9-2 seasons. He then moved on to Utah and went 22-2 in his two seasons there, including a 12-0 2004 campaign that was the first of two undefeated seasons for Meyer.

Meyer and his wife, Shelley, started the Urban and Shelley Meyer Fund for Cancer Research, which is a general cancer research support fund dedicated to advancing research for all cancers. The fund helps recruit experts in the field of cancer research to The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center. The Meyers have three children; Nicole (Corey) Dennis, Gisela, and Nate, and two grandsons: Troy and Gray.
