Multiple sources have confirmed this morning that Urban Meyer has accepted the job to become the head coach at Ohio State. Rumors have swirled about this move for over a week, and now things will come to a finale today. In fact, the press conference to introduce him will be tonight at 5:15 pm.

What is truly interesting about this move is the reactions from Buckeye commitments and recruits. Bucknuts and 247Sports have done some incredible work on that front, and you can read it here, here, and here. It appears that Bri’onte Dunn seems to be the only recruit that is having any issues with the hiring of Meyer.

Also of note will be who will make up Meyer's staff. Word is that Meyer met with Luke Fickell this morning in person to talk about him remaining on the staff. It also looks like Stan Drayton will stay on board. Outside of the current staff, Mike Stoops has been the most speculated name over the last 24 hours. We should fine out more on those fronts tonight.

We will keep you updated as more news comes...

I know that there are a lot of haters and critics out there on this hiring. But the guy is a proven winner and he brings a lot of intriguing things to the Buckeyes...and an excitement that hasn't been there for a little while.
