Urban Meyer will be trading his clipboard for a whiteboard following the Rose Bowl on January 1.

The football coach told 10TV’s Dom Tiberi that he will be co-teaching a character and leadership course at Fisher College of Business at Ohio State.

He will be teaching alongside lieutenant colonel Charles Buchanan, a military veteran of 15 years and a lecturer who has lead such classes as “How To Be A Leader Of Men,reports Deadspin.com.

Deadspin, Daily Caller, The Comeback, The Washington Post, and SB Nation also brought up the fact that it may be a little ironic for Meyer to be taking the responsibility of teaching young people about ethics after what happened to him earlier this season..

Meyer also plans to work with Athletic Director Gene Smith in some capacity with the football program but that has yet to be determined.

The OSU head football coach helm will be taken over by Ryan Day, the current co-offensive coordinator.

Earlier this month, Meyer announced his retirement following suspension for mishandling domestic abuse allegations made against his former receivers coach Zach Smith.

Sorry to rain on your parade, Columbus, but we were just named one of the gloomiest cities in America.

According to the website Bestplaces.net, Columbus is the 7th dreariest city in the country based on frequency of cloudy skies, rain, and snow as well as how many hours of daylight we get. But, we weren't the only Ohio city to land on the sunless, somber list.

Cleveland came in at #3, but Seattle beat out all the cities in this race to the bummed-out bottom.

Should we really trust this list, though? 10TV decided to do a little digging of its own.

Turns out, Columbus is cloudy 53% of the time and, though by a slim margin, actually gets more precipitation than Seattle.

There ya have it folks, the cold, hard, gloomy facts. All the more reason to get out and enjoy the nice days we actually do get–like today!

Every Republican in the House supported the bill, which now moves to the Republican-controlled Senate for approval.
