Ohio State Athletic Director Downplays Ryan Day Coach-In-Waiting Deal

posted by Cap'n Tony | @RadioOnTheTony - 

Ohio State Athletic Director Gene Smith is saying there is no truth to the rumors of Ohio State offering assistant coach Ryan Day a deal to replace Urban Meyer one day.  

Smith issued a statement on his Twitter yesterday praising Coach Day for his work with the team while also lending support behind the continued tenure of Urban Meyer.  

A report began circulating over the weekend saying the school was prepared to make Day the official coach-in-waiting.  

Day was named interim head coach during Meyer's three game suspension and led the team to an undefeated record with a road win against then number 15 ranked TCU.
