While stating his dedication to the team, Ryan Day revealed that he would give his players a short break before they commence preparations for the 2021 season on 1st February.

Some media reports had speculated that Urban Meyer would offer Coach Day a job in the NFL

Ohio State Buckeyes college football fans have expressed their relief after Day reiterated his commitment to the team. Some media reports had speculated that the Buckeyes head coach would leave the team and reunite with Urban Meyer in the NFL.

Meyer recently secured the Jacksonville Jaguars head-coaching job, and many analysts expected him to offer Day a job on his staff.

In his recent press conference, Coach Day claimed that he was looking forward to seeing the current players on the roster compete for the position. The second-year head coach is also hopeful that the 2021 season will see some return to normalcy since the coronavirus pandemic could be under control by September. In the meantime, Coach Day insists that Ohio State will follow all the laid down coronavirus protocols to keep its players and coaching staff safe.
