With Urban Meyer’s return ‘things are back to normal’ for Buckeyes

Urban Meyer is back. 

He isn’t talking to the media yet, though. 

While the last day of the Ohio State head coach’s suspension for mismanaging an assistant coach was Sunday, Ryan Day still handled the weekly press conference to start the week of preparations for Rutgers. 

“Coach came back today and we had a meeting early this morning,” Day said Monday. “He’s been meeting with some of the players. So things are back to normal. 

“Obviously he won’t be back for game day, but everything else is back to normal.”
