Urban Meyer says he gets headaches from a brain cyst

Dr. Andrew Thomas, Meyer's personal physician, released a statement, saying he has been working with Meyer to monitor and manage symptoms.

Since kneeling down on the sideline in a game against in on October 6 because of severe headaches, Meyer has been peppered with questions about his health and future in coaching.

Now it appears Meyer's health is an issue. "This includes aggressive headaches, which have particularly flared up the past two years". "I'm optimistic that this time won't be any different".

Meyer was diagnosed with the cyst in his brain in 1998 while an assistant coach at Notre Dame.

"Over the last few years, I've felt better and, with the help of my doctors, learned to manage it and monitor it with medication", Meyer said in a phone interview. What do you think the likelihood is that he is still coaching at Ohio State five years down the road? "I just want people to know what's going on", Meyer said.

Meyer, 54, said so far the pain has been manageable, and he has kept OSU athletic director Gene Smith in the loop about his condition. Speculation about Meyer's future has surfaced throughout the season due to his three-game suspension for his handling of domestic violence allegations made against former wide receivers coach Zach Smith, his visible frustration with the decision during the press conference, appearance on the sideline during and after the October 3 game vs. Indiana, and Monday's decision by the Browns to fire Jackson. In the early morning hours after the 2009 SEC Championship Game, his wife, Shelley, frantically called 911 when Meyer was unresponsive, suffering from chest pains.

"I've been suggesting that Urban Meyer has been done for a while based on the bad marriage and based on body language". The headaches are related to an arachnoid cyst in his brain that he has been dealing with for years.

Meyer and Ohio State, meanwhile, are set to return to the field on Saturday against Nebraska.
