Urban Meyer to release his first book this fall


Two books have been written about Urban Meyer: see 2009's Urban's Way and 2013's Buckeye Rebirth. But, come this fall, Meyer can add "published author" to his biography.

This week Penguin Random House announced plans to release Above the Line: Lessons in Leadership and Life from a Championship Season, written by Urban and Wayne Coffey. The book will chronicle Ohio State's unprecedented run for the 2014 national championship.

"The time was right for this book," Meyer said. "Last season’s Ohio State team was so inspiring to me, especially in the way it handled adversity, that I truly believed it offered lessons that could have value to a wider audience."

The book will be released Oct. 27, right smack dab in the middle of the Buckeyes' bye week.
