Urban Meyer is stepping down as Ohio State’s head coach, but he won’t be going far. He’ll be teaching a course called Leadership and Character within the Fisher College of Business.
Meyer, who will retire as Ohio State‘s coach after leading the Buckeyes against Washington in the Rose Bowl on Jan. 1, will co-teach a course titled “Leadership and Character” in Ohio State’s Fisher College of Business. Meyer will teach alongside Lt. Col. Charles Buchanan, a senior lecturer at the business school who also spent 15 years in the U.S. military, serving tours in Afghanistan, Iraq and Kosovo.
“Urban Meyer brings extensive leadership experience and a unique perspective to students seeking to engage with top leaders,” the Fisher College of Business said in a prepared statement. “The course will leverage Coach Meyer’s professional insights, challenges and successes, as well as the military experiences of co-instructor Lt. Col. Charles Buchanan, to help inform students as they develop their individual leadership styles.”
The class is BUSMHR 3211 – 0010 (3631) on Buckeyelink, but it’s already waitlisted.
