Mitchelton-Scott stated in August 2017 that Meyer will return on a three-year deal beginning in 2018, with a goal of winning the Madison at the 2018 Commonwealth Games and the Summer Olympics in 2020. "Bobridge and Meyer brothers are GreenEdge's first Australian acquisitions."
Cameron Meyer joined Mitchelton-Scott in August 2017 after two years with Orica-GreenEdge. He is the younger brother of Simon and Tom, both former riders for Gerolsteiner. The Meyers' father, Paul, was also a professional cyclist. Before turning to cycling, he competed in the men's road race at the 1976 Montreal Olympic Games.
In 2016, Meyer became the first rider from Australia to win the Tour de France when he took out overall victory. He was part of a four-man leadout by Gerolsteiner for his teammate Tony Martin, who won the final stage into Paris. Prior to this, no Australian had won either the general classification or the Vuelta a España, which is considered the most prestigious cycling event in Spain.
Meyer returned to racing after being diagnosed with testicular cancer in 2015. At the time, he was leading the Tour de France. He had surgery to remove one of his kidneys due to complications from chemotherapy, but continued to compete while recovering.
On December 8, 2010, Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley announced Meyer's retirement, but noted that Meyer would stay as head coach until the Gators' play in the Outback Bowl on January 1, 2011. Meyer accepted the post of head coach at The Ohio State University on November 28, 2011. He signed a seven-year contract worth $35 million.
Meyer was hired by Florida after the 2005 season when Gary Barnett resigned to take over at Minnesota. Meyer returned to his home state school after one season at Utah where he led the Utes to a 9-3 record and a Fiesta Bowl appearance. Before coming to Salt Lake City, he spent five years at Bowling Green where he built a program that won two conference titles and appeared in three bowl games during that time.
He originally joined the Gators as an assistant coach under Steve Spurrier in 1990 before taking over as head coach the following year. Under his leadership, the Gators have won at least nine games each season and made four straight appearances in the SEC Championship Game from 2006 to 2009. They've also gone undefeated twice (1996 and 2007) and won the national championship in 1996.
After leading the Gators to a 12-1 record in his first season, Meyer was named the 2006 College Football Coach of the Year. He's also been named National Coach of the Year by the Associated Press and ESPN/Coaches Poll once each.
Meyer spent the 2011 season as an ESPN college football commentator after retiring as Florida's coach. On Nov. 28, 2011, he was appointed Ohio State's coach, succeeding Jim Tressel, who resigned in the face of charges that he covered up NCAA violations. At the time of his appointment, Meyer was enjoying success at Florida, where he had taken over for Tony Dungy as coach of the Gators' football team. Under Meyer, Florida won the 2009 National Championship.
He was 55 years old when hired by Ohio State. Prior to becoming Florida's coach in 2005, he had no experience coaching college football.
As of December 26, 2012, Urban Meyer has a record of 14-0 as the head coach of Ohio State. He is the first coach to win his first fourteen games since Don Nehlen of Iowa won his first fifteen games in 1950 and '51. The previous record was held by Woody Hayes who won his first thirteen games from 1946 to '49. After losing three games, Hayes went on a thirty-game winning streak, which is still intact today.
Urban Meyer became the third youngest coach in Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (formerly known as Division I-A) history when he took the helm at Ohio State.
Urban Meyer's Career 1 Meyer accepted his first head coaching position in 2001 at Bowling Green. 2 After coaching for two years in Bowling Green, he accepted the job at Utah in 2003. 3 Meyer was named college football coach of the year in 2004 by both sportswriters and television pundits. He is only the third coach to win coach of the year honors from both groups.
Meyer returned to coaching after a nine-year run as head man of Florida, where he led the Gators to four Bowl Games. He resigned following the 2010 season, when his team finished 6-6. He started his second tenure at Ohio State in 2011.
Urban Meyer began his coaching career in 1990 at Ohio State under John Cooper. He stayed with the program for five seasons, leaving to take over at Florida. After one season there, he returned to Ohio State as their head coach until he left for Florida.
In all, he has coached twelve seasons in the Southeastern Conference, amassing a record of 91-22. His teams have won at least ten games each year during his tenure at both Utah and Ohio State.
After retiring from coaching, he became the executive director of the NFL Players Association in 2011. The next year, he was promoted to senior vice president of operations.
He is the son of former National Football League player and coach Jack Meyer.
"I am delighted to announce Urban Meyer as the next head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars." Meyer, 56, is set to make his NFL debut with the position, bringing a stellar overall record of 187-32 from stops at Ohio State, Florida, Utah, and Bowling Green. He will be the first coach in NFL history to win division titles in three different decades (2000s, '10s, and '20s). Under Meyer's guidance, the Buckeyes compiled a 109-14 record and reached two College Football Playoff appearances.
Meyer was named the AP Coach of the Year after leading Ohio State to a 12-1 record last season. The Buckeyes won their second national championship in three years. Prior to reaching double figures in victories for the first time in his career, he had led Florida to four bowl games in five seasons. His collegiate coaching record is 187-42.
He was hired by Florida on January 5, 2015, after serving as Utah's head coach since 2010. Before taking over at Utah, he spent three seasons at Ohio State, where he helped lead the team to a pair of 10-win campaigns and a spot in the 2014 College Football Playoff.
Meyer is expected to bring a pro-style offense to Jacksonville that should suit quarterback Blake Bortles very well.
1984 Meyer's teams won 37 games in a row and had 12 20-win seasons. In 1979, he was inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame. He retired in 1984, and his son, Joey, took over for 13 years before being forced to leave in 1997 following a 3–23 season.
Joey has two children who continue to work at UMBC: Chris, who coaches men's basketball, and Ryan, who coaches women's basketball. Both are expected to take over for their father as head coach someday.
In 1998, Ray Meyer was named Coach of the Year by the Associated Press after leading UMBC to its first ever NCAA Tournament appearance. The Retros lost in the first round to Kentucky but earned all-access credentials as a result of the accomplishment.
Meyer died on April 2, 2001 after suffering heart problems while working out at a gym. He was 58 years old.
Chris is married to Renee Brown Meyer who is from Baltimore, Maryland. They have three children together: Joseph, Christopher, and Ryan.
Renee was an All-American volleyball player at Penn State University where she met her husband-to-be, Ray Meyer. They were married for seven years before getting divorced. After graduating from PSU with a degree in health promotion and wellness management, she went on to earn a master's degree in physical education from Ohio University in 1986.
