Former Cavs Star LeBron James Sends a Congrats Tweet to Retiring Buckeye Coach Urban Meyer

At one point retiring Ohio State Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer attempted to recruit NBA legend LeBron James, going to St.Vincent-St.Mary and paying James a visit.

Now it’s 20 years later, and James is paying his respects back to Meyer, sending out a tweet as the Buckeye coach walks away with a Buckeye win 28-23 in the Rose Bowl over Washington.

James tweeted at Meyer as the Rose Bowl wrapped up, wishing Meyer nothing but the best in retirement.

The now Los Angeles Lakers star spoke about Meyer back in early December after the coach announced his plans to walk away, stating that he understands that the coaches health has to come first.

“My reaction? Um, I had two reactions, James said according to The Athletic’s Lakers writer Bill Oram.

“One is he’s been a hell of a coach for the Ohio State Buckeyes for years. But more importantly, his health is more important and that’s what it all boils down to.

“That’s a friend of mine and I’ve loved everything that he’s done at Ohio State being the coach of those kids and the program. But more importantly, his health is what’s more important.”
