The Buckeyes went 3-0 under Day, including a win over TCU in Arlington, Texas, before Meyer returned to the sideline September 22 against Tulane.
If you're a Buckeye fan you hope that Ryan Day can take over in Columbus and do what Lincoln Riley has at Oklahoma.
"I think Ryan and Dwayne, that's one of the best development jobs I've ever seen", Meyer said before the Big Ten championship last week.
Day also could, in theory, draw interest for National Football League head-coaching jobs. He joined Ohio State's staff in 2017 after stops at Temple (twice), Boston College (twice), the Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers.

Amid the scrutiny on Meyer's program, it also emerged that Zach Smith's treatment of his wife had drawn police scrutiny almost 10 years ago - shortly after Meyer first took him on as a graduate assistant at the University of Florida. He served the same role with Kelly in Philadelphia in 2016.
Players and coaches responded well to him, and if you ask those who have interacted with Day, there really are no bad reviews out there. Last season, Day coached quarterback J.T. Barrett, who posted a 64.7 percent completion rate with 35 touchdowns and nine interceptions.
"My son is committed to Ohio State University and Coach Day", said Terrance Mathis, Dwan's father.

Since the Korean leaders held talks for the first time in April, they have been trying to ease tensions along the border. The inspection has been delayed amid USA concerns about possible violations of United Nations sanctions on North Korea.
Brown was coach at Texas for 16 years and there were times he expected to face Meyer's Florida teams in national championship games. "He is known for getting his guys on the right track, he's always sharp with his reads, he understands the game so well and he's so passionate about it".
At the time the Big Ten was a college football wasteland devoid of good programs.
Ohio State wanted to announce Meyer's plans before the early signing period (Dec. 19-21) and with most of the coaching staff on the road recruiting.
Meyer said a lot of things contributed to his decision to retire, including the Zach Smith situation, but he mostly focused on his headaches.
Ohio State could have spent much of the season watching other coaches, but in each of those instances, the university would have had to imagine those coaches at OSU.
Day was becoming a hot name in coaching circles and his ability to step in and guide the Buckeyes during Meyer's suspension demonstrated his ability as an up-and-coming coach. He tweeted Tuesday he is still committed to the Buckeyes.
He later issued a statement apologizing directly to Smith's wife, saying, "Let me say here and now what I should have said on Wednesday: I sincerely apologize to Courtney Smith and her children for what they have gone through". "He gets his coaching points in, but he doesn't do a lot of yelling".
