(Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images)With Urban Meyer leaving coaching behind for now, the legendary coach is adjusting to his newest role of assistant athletic director of athletics initiatives and relations at Ohio State.This is familiar territory for another former coach of the Buckeyes, Jim Tressel, who also went from the football field to university administration.Tressel was the head coach of Ohio State from 2001 to 2010, but now serves as the president at Youngstown State University. His experiences on and off the field provide ideal examples for Meyer to follow.Nonetheless, Tressel is going one step further to help out Meyer in his quest for success away from the gridiron.In an effort to help Meyer get the best possible production from the next chapter of his life, Tressel shared his advice on how to handle an administrative role with the Buckeyes in an interview with Eleven Warriors.Jim Tressel shares his advice for Urban Meyer and Ryan Day, encouraging Meyer to seek fulfillment in his new role as an administrator and Day to believe in himself. https://t.co/gLHACii3bE— Eleven Warriors (@11W) January 31, 2019Although this will be completely different than coaching, Meyer will have to channel the same passion that made him one of the best at his profession.From Eleven Warriors:“My only suggestion to him was to make sure that he believes that the next chapter is just as important as the last chapter, and he’s got to create this next chapter as being something that will excite him and make him be fired up about what it is he’s contributing to the good of the whole,” Tressel said. “And sometimes it’s not an automatic light switch. Sometimes you have to think through it and experience some things before you really know for sure. But clearly, it will happen for him. And I tease him, he’s a young man, he’s got a lot of good things to do.”It’ll be interesting to watch Meyer shift away from coaching, especially considering how his love for the game brought him back in 2012.As for Ohio State, Ryan Day will try to lead the program to a national championship in his first season as the head coach.

On Thursday, March 31, 2016, Freddie Mac reports on the week’s average U.S. mortgage rates. (AP Photo/LM Otero, File) WASHINGTON – Average long-term U.S. mortgage rates were unchanged to slightly higher this week after declining the previous week.Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac said Thursday the average rate on a 30-year, fixed-rate mortgage was steady at 3.71 per cent. The benchmark rate also remained close to the 3.70 per cent level it marked a year ago.The average rate on 15-year fixed-rate mortgages edged up to 2.98 per cent from 2.96 per cent last week.Prices of U.S. government bonds and their yields — which move in opposite directions— also showed little change over the week, in contrast to their sharp swings in recent weeks.Mortgage rates tend to follow Treasury bond yields. The yield on the 10-year Treasury bond stood at 1.83 per cent Wednesday, down from 1.87 per cent a week earlier. The yield slipped to 1.82 per cent Thursday morning.Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen, in a speech Tuesday, reaffirmed the Fed’s plans to move slowly in raising the interest rates it controls. That prospect could keep a lid on mortgage rates in coming weeks.To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country at the beginning of each week. The average doesn’t include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. One point equals 1 per cent of the loan amount.The average fee for a 30-year mortgage was unchanged from last week at 0.5 point. The fee for a 15-year loan also held steady, at 0.4 point.Rates on adjustable five-year mortgages averaged 2.90 per cent this week, up from 2.89 per cent last week. The fee remained at 0.5 point.
