How did the players react? According to Mike Garafolo, they were incredibly happy and many texted their agents the peace out emoji.

You can listen to his report below.

While I didn’t expect Meyer to get canned while I was sleeping, I’m not shocked at all that his former players aren’t shedding tears that he’s gone.

As anyone who has been paying attention knows, Meyer’s relationships within people on the roster weren’t exactly great.

He reportedly got into a huge blowup argument with Marvin Jones and allegedly kicked former kicker Josh Lambo.

So, it’s pretty easy to understand why guys in the locker room are ready and excited for a fresh start.

It’s truly amazing how Urban Meyer went from being a top five greatest college football coach to ever live to being out of the NFL after 13 embarrassing games.

What an incredible fall from grace for the former OSU coach. Just a stunning collapse.
