Is Urban Meyer's legacy tarnished forever?

For many, Meyer's legacy as one of the greatest college football coaches of all time is secure. Others look at the crimes that have occurred under his watch and think he is garbage.

When it comes to coaching, it's about what a man does on the field. And all Urban Meyer has done is win.

The Ohio native is a three-time national championship winner, including the first national champion under the current College Football Playoff system. His current .853 winning percentage ranks him third in NCAA history and Meyer also has two Coach of the Decade awards to back that up. 

Meyer can't track and control every human being he is in charge of. Other people's transgressions should not taint his greatness. The legacy he built is intact.

Part of being a coach is molding the men you're charged with managing. Meyer's track record has been terrible.

He allegedly turned a blind eye to domestic violence at Ohio State. While he was at Florida, 31 players were arrested for misdemeanor and felony charges in the six years he was with the university. Regardless of whether or not he is at fault, an obvious pattern has emerged—Meyer is not a good judge of character.

Meyer didn't do too many favors either with his "apology" to his former assistant coach's ex-wife, where it took him a couple days to directly apologize to an alleged victim of domestic abuse. He's toxic and should not be celebrated.
